This blurry photo absolutely does not do justice to the creature recently found on the floor of our bathroom.
My housemates were concerned (with reason) that if I went closer to get a better photo, I might scare it away into the nether regions behind the toilet where we wouldn’t be able to get at it, and they very much wanted it out of the bathroom.
In my memory it’s about four inches across. As I look at the photo I realize that I’ve probably exaggerated things slightly, but this was a big spider. A very cool, very big spider.
