Huge Spider caught in BED

brampton, Canada

Hi Everyone, I have a HUGE favour to ask. SOMEONE please help me identify this spider. I was about to sleep and it was on top of my shoulder and luckily I was awake but panicked and this spider was SUPER speedy and quick to hide in my pillow case.

Does anyone know what this spider is called? is it dangerous?

It's an eastern parson spider, Herpyllus ecclesiasticus. Their bite can be painful, but is not dangerous. For more information, see
