We had wolf spiders in Tx that everyone thought were tarantulas. They'd drop out of the trees..... We would keep telling everyone - silly people tarantulas don't drop out of trees they sneak attack from the ground.... We did have tarantulas as well they lived in the ground. (there are tree dwelling tarantulas and ground dwelling wolf spiders but in our area the tarantulas were on the ground - wolfs in trees) Seriously find out what it is. Post a pic. We may be able to help id it.
BEST.LINE.EVER.... and so true!
