You guys have some awesome spiders .. great patterns and sizes.

Love these guys Patrick, when we were kids we used to catch them and put them in a large watering bowl full of water, then we would dribble soap in until it broke the tension of the waters surface and they would sink. Countless hours of fun with chemistry.

Is that one of those giant Austrailian spiders I have heard about.
- November 21, 2019 at 9:55 pm #425697
It is a pretty big bugger that’s for sure. The wife thought it might be a Wolf Spider so I did a Google image search and sure enough, it came up with Wolf Spider. They look very similar to a Huntsman but finding it in the garden should have given it away because Huntsman spiders are usually found inside the home.
I once caught and released a spider about 1.5 times bigger than this one which had found its way onto a bus I was driving. A passenger approached me to let me know it was hovering above one of the seats. When I saw it I nearly crapped my pants! Must have been a tarantula ‘cos I’ve never seen one as big before or since. Very carefully, I wrangled it into a discarded Hungry Jacks disposable drink container with a piece of paper over the top and then released it onto a grass verge outside the bus. When I got back on the bus I received a round of applause from the passengers which made my day.
