After Patty killed a HUGE spider in the garage, I kinda want to watch Eight Legged Freaks again. This spider was LARGE, and Patty said it took two full-on whacks with a shovel before it stopped. When I got home, it still wasn't dead, but it was definitely injured. A lot. I would estimate it at about a 3/4" long body and 2-3" legs - or about a 5-6" diameter critter including legs. Shiny black legs and a fuzzy black/brown body - kinda armored looking. Looked a lot like THIS spider. (Scroll down to Nov 21 on that link page...)
