Rabid Wolf Spider

...at least I think this is what this chap is called! It popped out of a bush while I was trimming some grass tonight. One of the biggest spiders I have seen in Texas so far (still teeny compared to its Aussie counterparts!)

I think I killed one of these last night. It was HUGE!!! It was waiting at my front door like it was waiting for me to let it in. I took off one of my flip flops and killed it. The body was at least an inch long and the entire spider, legs and all, was the size of a moose, I mean mouse.

Yes, they are quite big in a startling way and remind me of the huntsman spiders I used to see back home in Australia. Neat though!
