PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
I sleep in the basement at my house and I've seen four huge spiders down there that all look the same. Three out of the four were either on my clothes or inside the sleeve or leg of some clothes. Somebody please tell me what kind of spider this is and tell me if it bites me, its venom won't eat my flesh away! I thought this one was dead, so I took pictures of it, but then it slowly started moving. If I had any idea that it was still alive I would have freaked out. I haven't gotten super close to it, but the body and legs look velvety...like fuzzy but not hairy.
