If you don't like noise, get a spider. Here's mine- her name is Zenobia Beaverbottom. She doesn't make webs. She hangs out on the floor or wall at night and waits for smaller critters to victimize.

Looks like a Huntsmen spider.

Indeed it does look like a Huntsman Spider.. It has a thinner, pointier rear end than most of the spiders in pictures turned up by my Bing image search, but one of the images was a very close match. Sorry for the photo being a bit blurry.

I believe it remembered me last visit from our encounters a year previously. One morning about 3AM it came out from under the kitchen cabinets and crossed the floor to hang out close where I was sitting. A few days later it came down the wall right next to me and again hung out near my feet for a while.

Ayoko..... I no like. Especially at 3 AM when you get up to take a whiz and find one in the CR.  I just call them banana spiders and prefer to WHAP them with my slipper, watch them shrink like a black star, and flush them out of existence. They  come in from the neighbors banana trees, that I spend time keeping lopped off when they hang over my wall and touch our house. During big rains, the spiders look for cover and a house provides it better than  a plant it seems. 

I have no problems living with all the small ones that scurry about killing the biting insects and gnats, but I draw the line with the big ones for primitive reasons.

I was going to measure this guy but was afraid he might steal my tape measure.    I would estimate four inches using the block in the picture as a comparison.

They'er harmless unless you try and pick one up. None venomous but if they bite you can make your skin itchy and swell up.

Freaks me out when they run.
