Is this a spider? It has 8 legs, but it looks more like an ant. lol
AS: No it’s a solifugid or solifugae, a member of the arachnid family but are not spiders even though these are commonly known as camel spiders, these guys are more closely related to scorpions

So I ran into this lil guy back in July, actually, near Salt Lake City. They were pretty large and I think they’re some kind of orb weaver, but do you have any idea what species?
AS: it’s a Western Spotted Orbweaver, Neoscona oaxacensis which can come in a variety of colors and patterns :)
