This thing is terrifying. I went to check on/top up the ducks’ food the other day, and came across SHELOB sitting in the deck box that I use to house their food and bedding material. You may be laughing if you live in another part of the country, but I have never seen a spider that big in this part of our state. I nearly died. When I showed the photo to Craig later, he said “You let Helo get that close to it?” No concern for my well-being.
