It was too big for me to kill; I don't normally like to kill spiders anyway but the fear thing is atavistic and gets to me. This one was big enough that I was afraid to maim it, and more afraid of the noise I thought killing it would make.
Yes, we took pictures to document. I will put a cut because it is a photo that would startle me unpleasantly. I still don't enjoy looking at it. YMMV.
The text on the paper under the glass is 14 point or so, for comparison.
It was big enough I was pretty proud of myself afterward. I have a strong intellectual appreciation for spiders, but really prefer them to stay outside.
