Hello all,

Yesterday I was out on my moms land and came across a couple interesting spiders. I dont really know anything about them, but from the look and stance of one it instantly reminded me of a huntsman spider. I was hoping someone could tell me more. It was roughly about 1" legspan from what I could tell. Quality isn't the best, but he was a little high up on the side of the house. I know nothing about huntman's so it's just my first guess.





Another I have no idea what it is....anyone?





Oh, and something I have never seen before...a spiders molted skin, while NOT in captivity. Just never seen one, and thought it was cool and I should share. Anyone wanna venture a guess as to what it might have been?




Thanks!

the second one strikes me as some kind of orb weaver, then again I'm no expert. My first thought on the first spider was a wolfie. The molt seems hairy and long legged enough to be a wolfie as well, they are pretty common around Plano.
