Sometime ago, some one emailed me, I can't remember who it was, asking if it was true we have huge spiders in Australia. Well here's a Huntsman spider we've had wandering around our bedroom for a couple of weeks now. He/she has been too high up for us to reach until today when it was resting on the window ledge. We try not to kill them as they are relatively harmless, so my husband, occasionally me, puts a container over them and relocates them outside.
The first photo shows the underside and you can see the quite large fangs. Sometimes they rear up at you, I think they're the females, they don't always make it to the outside world, if they show me aggression. That's my husband's hand holding the container so it gives you an indication of the size.
More art next post.
