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).

It was also a very large spider…that’s DH’s finger in front of it!

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.
