  1. Interestingly there is a scary nope critter commonly called a Red Roman Spider, which can be bigger. I recently found out that it’s not a true spider though. But damn are they scary.

    I have been inches away from one whose legs extended past the edge of a large dinner plate. They have book lungs so they shrug off poison sprayed on them unless they run directly over it. They run very fast, can jump quite high, chase shadows and have a painful bite. If memory serves they are technically scorpids….but I speak under correction and they really look like very mean spiders.
