Good one. The Wolf Spiders can get fairly big. Same with the Tarantulas. The Brown Recluse are not all that big ... but they pack a really nasty punch. The Black Widow Spiders I have seen have only been about 2 inches across ... but again, not something you want to mess with.

You don't absolutely have to be insane to live in Texas, but it really does help. Ran across another Texas coral snake on the trail yesterday. The snakes really keep me on the trails and out of the brush in the summer. The snakes and the chiggers ... great, now I'm really itching.
