Huntsman

Description:

Large spider approximately 9 inches across. The size of a dinner plate.

Notes:

I heard it first, it made a drumming sound walking on the hollow paneling. A late night bathroom break. Go find a camera. I was told it was a tiger spider. Beneficial, it ate other bugs.

Looks like some species of huntsman, maybe Heteropoda venatoria.
