My wife was NOT happy that this crab spider was on my 2 year old son's pants while in the sandbox. Me.....not so worried. As long as you don't freak out and remove it calmly you are unlikely to get bit.

Luckily I was able to get a good shot of it after it was removed.

Great shots Nate! Looks like something from a horror movie.

Thanks Chad. Some crab spiders look cute.... this guy looks a bit scary. My wife wasn't any happier about the situation after seeing my picture. :smile:

Nice...! :smile:

That's a male, correct, when they look like they are wearing boxing gloves...?

Thanks and yes, when they have three bulbous palps then they are males.. Good catch.

Great shot! I'm smiling while I picture your wife screaming to get it off, and you screaming back, "not til I get the camera!" There are priorities in life!
