Ninja spider

This was taken at Admirality Cove, north of Hamilton. I don't know what kind of spider it's supposed to be, but it looks like the Ninja of all spiders. I think I'm going to call it NINJA SPIDER. It's like a cross between a tarantula, a crab and a spider (and I say that because you're actually looking at the underside of the spider). Getting a front shot was not an option, unless I could fly. Sometimes I wonder where these things come from. You'll not find a spider like this in Canada and it's thing I've had to get used to upon moving here. Oh, the bugs! And you know how I previously said I don't mind spiders sticking around, well, I'd not want this thing anywhere near me. It looks mighty mean (the closer and longer you look, the meaner it gets), like it could do some serious damage and because of that, naming it is as far as I'm going to go.

Girl those little things are been here for years since I was a kid (and that was not yesterday hehehehe)
They are harmless!!! They are only found in bushes. What are you doing

Well, looks are certainly deceiving in this case cause that is one WICKED looking spider.

great blog. i got here via jonnystar's. That is a crab spider, btw. They are harmless. We used to make them pets when we were kids. There seems to have been a big burst of them this year too.
