Don't shudder. I like spiders. This one doesn't want to crawl onto a piece of paper and get tossed out the window, and I'm making an effort not to let her drown when I take a shower. But turning the water down to cool is more of a sacrifice than I'm willing to make.
There's nothing to show the scale very well, although the tiles are 12 inch, so I got out the measuring tape. (She didn't twitch a leg.) The body is about three-quarters of an inch long, and from tip of front legs to tip of back legs is about three inches. Large lady.
