Spiders. I have lots of them. I saved many spiders from the bottom of my Friends and Family's boots.

I should also say I think they're one of the most 'intelligent' arthropods. Look up stuff on the portia spider, quite a little marvel.

I think deer are the dumbest animals. I hate them.

Depending on where you found it originally, you may not find it. It may have just briefly entered your house to escape some bad weather and warm up a little. Unless you have a rodent or possibly large insect problem, the snake shouldn't stay in your house very long.

I can't help with an ID, will need a picture, but 12 inches? That's one small snake. I'm not too familiar with breeding cycles of wild snakes, so, it could either be a young snake, or something like a garter snake.

Man, I wish snakes just came into my house. :lol:

Pretty big? Nah, I've seen some wolf spiders in excess of a 2" leg span. And a fishing spider that was larger than some of my tarantulas. Grass spiders can push about a 1.5" leg span.

It's either a wolf spider or grass spider. I'll say it's a grass spider, but to be 98% sure I'd need a closer picture. Completely harmless spiders.

Sure is!

Yeah, it was probably around the size of a penny in legspan. I love my girlfriends macro camera, I use it more than she does!
