Help SPIDER Identification
[Return to Topics]

As you know, I live in Georgia. Never seen a spider like I saw the other day. I have looked on the internet everywhere and cannot find this spider. My daughter and a friend saw two at school on the ground, and Tip got one on her in the bushes at the school. It was very orange red, like you would think of a crab, and as a matter of fact, it even looked kind of crablike. It was bigger than the "crab" spiders I saw on sites. It's legs were not transparent like some spiders, it was all a solid reddish orange. Now my daughter swears it had 6 legs. I don't know, I didn't wait around to count the legs when I saw one. It had gotten on the dog, and I just brushed it off and went on. The body was big, all I can say is, minus the pinchers, it looked like a miniature crab. Anybody know anything or seen one of these? I have never seen one in my life up until now. Thanks for any help y'all can give.

I know you said it is not an ant lion but it sure sounds like this picture!

Sounds like something we call around here and Ant Lyon. Not a spider at all. Was it real fuzzy looking? If that was indeed what it was, it is harmless to people and pets.

Nope, this thing was ugly and big. Looked a lot like a crab, just little. Ant lions are in the sand, we used to call them doodle bugs when we were kids, and throw ants into their pit and watch them get the ants. Thanks though, hopefully someone will know what I mean. Guess I ought to go take a picture of one if I can find one again.

Kelly, here's you a site where you might can identify that spider and most any other kind of critters you find that need identifying. :)
