There is a fairly diverse bunch of spiders in the Yukon, too, but I don't recall seeing one like this around Whitehorse before - not that I'm an expert on Yukon arachnids.
Eight legs on a two-by-four.
I have a friend who used to work in a grocery store and would pull live black widow spiders out of banana boxes. I suspect that this beauty of a beast may have traveled north in a shipment of building supplies (more on that another time), but that's only a guess. Are there any arachnologists out there who can set me straight?
Not a HUGE spider, but it's big enough and hairy enough to tickle if it were to climb up your pants.
