Giant huntsman with tiny housemate NB. image has been turned for greater detail. Original position was almost vertical, head down on my kitchen wall. <br />
<br />
This leggy lady is genus Heteropoda, commonly known as giant hunstman spiders. I didn&#039;t get to see what type of spider her tiny housemate was, as it scuttled away soon as this shot was taken. <br />
<br />
Heteropoda sp. are found mainly in the warmer regions of  tropical Asia and here in Australia. <br />
<br />
I estimate leg span on this specimen to be around 12 cm.  Araneae,Australia,Geotagged,Heteropoda,Sparassidae,Spring,arachnid,arthropod,fauna,invertebrate,macro,new south wales Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
