Description

This spider was really big and it had 8 legs. Its sac was a dull grey-white and its top half was a dark red. The legs were a red-orange. It was pretty big, I'd say about 3 inches in length if not bigger. One detail in particular that stood out was that its sac was really, really big and round. Really scary to see in person. It was in some dirt where there were no plants at the time.

Sitting in a sunny window. The eye pattern says jumping spider to me. I'm waffling between calling it S. scenicus or Pelegrina galethea (peppered jumper).
