I found this spider outside my door a few hours ago. Hubby sprayed it with Raid and then we put it in the garage freezer. I've never seen a spider in life with such a big bulbous body. It is brown and black the legs are lighter than the body and there appears to be different variations of the brown and black color on the body, nothing with a definite pattern. I see two rows of two eyes, and then I see a third row (bottom row) with two red dots set out further than the previous row of what I think are eyes. There is something sharp looking thing coming out of its rear. I attached a few pictures.
