Four years ago I found a spider so big that I'll never forget. Unfortunately I don't have a picture but I guess there isn't a lot of big spiders in Mexico. So here are some things I remember:

  • It wasn't a brown spider, I think it had red legs with some parts black and others white.
  • Its legs were skinny and very long
  • The main body was tiny compered with the spam of its legs.
  • I found it at noon, after I moved to my new house. Unfortunately it wasn't moving when I found it
  • The spider didn't have any visibly hair.

That's all I can remember. I know that this may be impossible but I don't know what else to do.


Sounds like a Mexican Red Knee Tarantula. they are kept as pets. not dangerous except for irritant hairs which they can project and which can get into eyes.
