It was dark brown, and very hairy. It’s body was long, not circular and bulgy like a typical widow. Almost shaped like two connecting tear drops. I live in the suburbs of northern Virginia, if that helps.
Some kind of hunting spider?
It looks like a classic North American 404 Spider to me.
(In other words…the link is giving me a 404 - Not Found - error.)
Looks like a wolf spider. Fearsome looking but mostly harmless (at least in U.S.).
Dude, any spider that hunts wolves ain’t harmless.
OK, I’m kidding.
