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.

Definitely not a dangerous spider - might be a woodlouse spider -

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