Ok is anybody an arachnid expert on here? I captured a huge spider, how can I know what type it is?

Any web sites I can look at.....it is about the size of the palm of my hand...nasty looking booger! Makes me have chills.

  • Ugh. You can google it or contact a local university. There might be a department that can help. Also, if it bit someone keep it and bring it to the doc. Google spider species Alabama or something. Good luck.
