Maybe around 4-5" across, pretty big. We found this guy and others on a rig in South Texas, they certainly do wander around there, but they are in remote ranch areas. I've never seen one in our residential area (thankfully!).

Is this guy about 5" across? Looks huge. Do they just wander around the porch around there?
