Why I Do NOT Live in Texas

My daughter, who DOES live in Texas, just posted this on Facebook:

This was on her windshield.  

And yes, it is a tarantula.

And yes, she totally should set that car ON FIRE.  

OMG!!!  OMG!!! OMG!!!  OMG!!!  OMG!!! and so on.....


I stand corrected.  It is a Daring Jumping Spider, known for its ability to jump up to 40 times its length.

Gosh, that is so much better.  OMG!!!   and so on....   Burn the car.

According to Peter Corradino, who is a biologist, it is called a Daring Jumping Spider, not a tarantula.
