Be Afraid, jr.

It occurs to me that some of you fine people may not know what a Huntsman spider looks like. I didn’t include a photo in previous post because doing so would probably make me liable for any injuries you caused yourself when screaming and leaping back from the screen.

But if you’re curious and/or sadomasochistic (it’s funny how thin the line is between those two traits), then you can take a look here.

Look, if you dare.

  1. i should not have looked.

  2. Your spider reminds me of what my sister and I called Banana Spiders(not sure of their scientific name) in SC. They were about the size of our hands with black bodies and yellow stripes and had the ability to build webs in about 20 mins that spread about 7ft across. The existence of these creatures made it a terrifying experience to walk across my backyard as a kid…
    I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t like it even to this day, but thankfully I haven’t encountered the banana spiders since we moved from Folly Beach.

  3. Jenn- yeah, I remember those. They’re pretty terrifying, too, especially since their webs are the size of small houses. They’re sort of pretty from a distance, though…
