My wife thought I left this fake spider in the garage as a joke until she moved towards it and it moved towards her ! I've never seen a spider like this before inside or outside here in Illinois. From tip to tip of legs he measures about 2.5", body is dark and kinda' fuzzy.

Not a Hobo. More likely a Wolf.
