Giant huntsman with tiny housemate
NB. image has been turned for greater detail. Original position was almost vertical, head down on my kitchen wall.
This leggy lady is genus Heteropoda, commonly known as giant hunstman spiders. I didn't get to see what type of spider her tiny housemate was, as it scuttled away soon as this shot was taken.
Heteropoda sp. are found mainly in the warmer regions of tropical Asia and here in Australia.
I estimate leg span on this specimen to be around 12 cm.
