Yes, I know, this is a creepy looking spider. The picture doesn't do justice to how really creepy this spider is! I would try and hold up a quarter or something to show you, if I weren't scared that it would jump out and attack me. Fortunately this guy isn't in our house. He is only on the side of our shed. We checked out several books on spiders at the library today in hopes of learning more about it. So far I know that it is: ugly, yellow and black and it can sew a mean zig-zag stitch!
