haha holy crap if one of those were in the car I would probably die.

Yeah, we have a lot of cougars and bear, mostly black bear, but there are still grizzly here also.
I typically see 10 - 15 cougar in a summer.
Maybe 20 - 30 bear.

Seriously, I'm so freaked out by those spider pictures, I am so scared of them! I looked at it last night and couldn't finish because it was freaking me out so bad! Talk about nightmares! I agree about WA, I'm from Eastern Washington and lived in Western...nothin! Cougars and bear yeah, but pfft....they wouldn't come in your house and make a web in the corner, and then rip you apart piece by piece while you sleep! Okay, maybe that is a little far fetched but you never know! YUCK! I live in CA now, hardly any bugs and I love it! Coyotes always eat my pets (3 so far) and cougars wonder around but no spiders! Ewwwwww, just ewwwwwwww

Tell me something...Do the larger Archnids have more then one Egg Sac per Lifespan??

The fatal flaw in that picture is the fact the Mother is still there...I thought that the Mother lays the sac and then she dies, and the next spring the sac bursts open. She seems to be still there, I wonder if some of the Bigger spiders because they can live for many years, actually have nests regularly??

You had an evil looking Jumping Spider living right outside your place in 2007...I know, because I was reading
