Six-Legged Spider

I was sitting at my computer on the night of 6/6/2008 when my brother yelled for me to come downstairs and check out what was lurking on the driveway. To my surprise, it was a spider with only 3 pairs of legs. I immediately ran upstairs and grabbed my camera. I have seen lots of weird creatures at my home, including many Solifugae scorpions, but this deformed spider is the strangest. Either it somehow lost the 7th and 8th legs or was born that way. After closer inspection, I found that there was also a brave ant getting dangerously close.
