#Arachtober – 5 Days Until Halloween

Florida huntsman spiders hide behind curtains and boxes pushed against the wall.  They’re velvety brown and large, nearly the size of your hand.  Their legs tickle if you let them crawl over your fingers.

You’ll see them when you pull back the shower curtain or move something from under your bed.  But they’ll skitter away, shy around humans.  For every one you see, many more are still hidden.
