horrifying spider

as big as my fucking hand. no lie.

 

according to my friend chris, via myspace: "Your Horrifying Spider (as big as your fucking hand, no lie) is a Nephila Maculata, of the Tetragnathidae family. Spiders in this genus (Nephila) are also called "golden orb web" spiders, named so because of the yellowish color of their silk which happens to be the strongest in the entire Araneae order (spiders)."
