Giant yellow and brown spider with a brown underbelly with four white spots
Hi there! I looked out the window this morning and noticed a large spider hanging out in between two bushes in front of my house. I am wondering what kind of spider it is and if it something to worry about as my kids sometimes play in those bushes.
Mesa County Colorado spiders
This looks like a cat-faced spider. See http://bspm.agsci.colostate.edu/files/2013/03/Cat-faced-Spider.pdf and http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05512.html for details. They are not a health concern.
