How he got there, I have no idea...and apparently he doesn't know either because he keeps crawling around trying to find a way out...rather unsuccessfully. Here he is again, middle left.
I can't decide if I want him to find his way out or not. I obviously don't want a dead spider curled up at the bottom of my nice clock. (The clock my parents gave us as a wedding gift, so throwing it away is not an option...but believe me, I entertained the idea for a while) But, as long as he's in that clock, he's not secretly slipping into our beds to bite me and my family at night... Did I mention I have an extreme phobia of spiders?
Which is actually part of the reason I am posting these picturesCan somebody PLEASE tell me what kind of spider this is? This is probably the best picture of the top of his body that I have:
And this is a picture of the bottom (he's crawling on the glass).
Is this a poisonous spider? It is isn't it? It's super deadly huh? Red is never a good color for a spider. It's like one of those spiders found in banana trees isn't it! Like a one bite and you're dead kind of spider. Crap, my family is in mortal danger. PLEASE!!! TELL ME WHAT KIND OF SPIDER THIS IS!!!
I'm going back to make sure it's still in the clock.
