    I got bit by a spider last night at about 4am and managed to trap it in a plastic container. I need help identifying it preferably sooner than later. I posted a video on YouTube here is the link. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Deductively speaking..if the spider was poisonous then I would have other symptoms like major swelling and dizziness. I only have minor swelling and a barely visible bite mark.

    I can’t really tell by the video. Doesn’t look poisonous

    Looks like a brown recluse to me. Oral antibiotic will cover ya. Their bite starts out as a pimple then starts to get an open sore after a few days. If you notice this call n see if primary care doc will give you some Keflex.

    It may be a recluse. The legs and head are a little different. Otherwise it may be.
    A good way to tell is if it jumps. A recluse will kind of jump when it moves.

    Ok bad joke.... hope everything is going well.

    Poison is digested, venom is injected into bloodstream.

    Yeah, ive been in touch with Rick and hes never seen a true recluse in Ca. Nor been sent a true recluse from Ca.

    Not sure where op is from... Rick may still accept spiders for identification, but thats a risky prospect if this is a dangerous spider.

    Got back from a couple visits to some pet stores and a clinic and All came to the conclusion that it was a wolf spider. Nothing a little Tylenol and antibiotic lotion can’t fix. Thanks guys
