What kind of spider is this?

Posted by marbree z5 MI (My Page) on

I don't know what kind it is, if it's poisonous, native, or even what site to post this on.



on a 2 1/2 - 3 inch can - it was on the bottom of this can when it was found.

Does anyone have any ideas what kind of spider this could be or where I could find out? I haven't seen a spider like it before.

Thanks, Marbree

I would guess it to be one of the orb spiders. But here's a site you might enjoy. Rai

I agree, an orb spider. Good also to go to

Thank you so much. We had let it go since it didn't seem aggressive, so I'm glad it's a good guy.
