And yes, it was THAT size! In my entryway the other night.
You just gotta love living in rural Oklahoma.
It’s a wolf spider. Here’s a few tidbits: Common household pest in the fall when they are looking for a warm place to overwinter. (Um, not in my house, thank you). Wolf spider mothers carry their large egg sacs around with them. When the young spiderlings hatch they climb onto their mother’s back and ride around until partially grown. (Major heebie-jeebie dance here)
It’s a horror movie in the making.
Oh, and Charlie killed it. I just love that man. Yes, I’m sorry. I know they’re probably nice little creatures looking for a warm home, but they scare the shit out of me and I’m not sharing my house with them.
