While I'm not overly fond of spiders (except Jumping Spiders, they're neat!) without them the insect population and its assault on our food supply, would soar to the point where we might all die of starvation. So they do provide a very valuable service, and you are unlikely to run into this species unless you go caving in Oregon.
3" really isn't that big - try the huntsman in oz, you don't want to come across that when walking to the loo, although completely harmless.
Well at least it would help me with my purpose in the loo...I hope not prematurely though
Seriously though... I wonder what it is about this part of creation that makes so many people fearful? I guess it's a primal memory (if such exist) of the danger of their bites?
