That's a Brown Recluse (Loxosceles reclusa) - they live in North America but have related species and genera across the world. Their bite inflicts a kind of enzyme that causes advanced necrosis (killing of tissues) in the surrounding area and, if left untreated, can result in amputation or death.

Here's a good link (to the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services) to give you pictures of some of these nasty little crawlies:

Additionally, here's a picture from the University of California Department of Entomology that describes their home ranges:

Enjoy!

Im sure some people would appreiciate if you warned them of the grusomness of that bite, although the picture is currently down i assume you got that picture from this following link

It is infact an undetermined photo, useally photos of that nature tend to me undetermined. The brown recluse spider bite goes and messes with your tissue causing it to swell and sometimes in sevear cases like we saw up there actually open the thumb up with absolutly grotesq puss comming out in a attempt to heal it.

My husband got bitten by one of those several years ago.

Right on the front of his shin.  The doctor finally had to do surgery; he had a hole in his leg that looked like somebody scooped it out with a watermelon scooper.  That was to stop the poison from eating up any more of the flesh.

The bites are dangerous.

Now he has a huge round scar there.
