Okay, I don’t generally “do” spiders. They are creepy and disgusting. But Anthony came running in the house yesterday for me to come see this “cool bug” that “isn’t a spider.” I went out and took a look and then informed him that it quite certainly was a spider. A very weird and neat looking spider. One that I don’t think I have ever seen before (even though San Diego seems to be a common habitat for them).
Bob googled it and we determined it was a Green Lynx spider. Non-venomous, but it has an extremely painful bite. Nice. I think I’ll just admire it in pictures.
