7392. I don’t know the species of this spider. The abdomen is the size of a man’s thumbnail. It weaves characteristic and regular spider webs (radiating spokes with a center). I’ve never seen such a large spider in Saskatchewan. My parents would come out to marvel at the spider every night as it sits on its web. Saskatoon, SK. Canada
