Giant Crab Spider

Olios species

Description:

Someone called this the Crab-Walking Spider and this what I have called them ever since. They come into our house very often and they are so very fast they are hard to catch. They creep me out! I guess I just have to get past those 8 legs. Yes, they really do walk sideways like a crab! Part of why they creep me out. You just don't know which way they will go.

Habitat:

Sonoran Desert

Not a pet. Go to my reference website to find out that they are common here in Tucson.
