Could you help us figure out what type of spider this is? We live in Los Angeles and this was found dead under a couch where some coca cola was spilled a few weeks ago. Is this dangerous to babies? We have a little one on the way.
Thanks,
MM

Definitely not a dangerous spider - might be a woodlouse spider - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodlouse_spider

OK thanks (again). Do you know what the black sac on the back of it might be?
