Offending a Spider

Here's something I drew awhile back but it was too big and my scanner had a mental breakdown. I made it a bit smaller and scan-worthy.

Then the spider, who was either sleeping or playing possum, started to move. I panicked, but quickly scooped him up, ran to the door and threw him outside. I hope he survived. Anyway, I marveled at the size of the spider, even though I know that there are much bigger ones out there.
