    This is because you're a ranger. Rangers receive a -5 when determining the level/attributes of your animal companion, it seems the screen on the right is bugged isn't taking into account the -5 (I think this was one of the older bugs that was fixed by an official patch. Is your game up to date?).
    So basically your ranger's "summoner level" for animal companions is level 2, which is why you're getting a level 3 spider instead of a level 6 one.
    Only druid companions can reach max level in Neverwinter Nights 1.

    At low levels you should pick a tough animal companion like the Brown Bear, the Dire Wolf or the Boar. On a ranger I'd personally suggest using the Brown Bear from start to finish. Once your ranger gains enough levels to summon tougher animal companions though you could start using companions like the giant spider, if you really want to.
