Hi Guys,

This is Dan.

I found this spider.

Can you help identify its type?

Does it bite?

It it a harmless spider? Beneficial? Neither?

Thanks for your time

Ground spider in family Gnaphosidae - harmless to humans. Nearly all spiders can bite but very few are dangerous - see 'sticky' on spider bites.

Hi Flapdoodle! (funny name...)

Thanks for the fast response.

Found it near my baby's crib...

Wanted to make sure he wasn't in any danger...
