      I’m not sure… what do the bettors think?

        Karl says a huntsman spider. I don’t think so, but not sure what it is. Huntsman are quite big apparently and deadly.

        Hmm, this was less than an inch long. Huntsmen seem to be bigger and more tropical. I don’t know if we have any here in Brooklyn — this was in the new Native Garden at BBG. I think it’s probably one of the wolf spiders, which don’t build webs but rather hunt their prey.

        I had a feeling it was unlikely to be a Huntsman. I am collecting my dollar.
