There was a guard dog, but i think this thing ate it.
Currently residing outside my daughter's window.
Nothing to do with Tamiya really, I just thought I'd share.

The house bricks give you an idea of the size

That's a female huntsman spider. They're an Australian household pest. This one's a little large. My guess is she's around 4 inches from toe to toe. They're actually mostly harmless, unless you have a heart or bowel condition. They'll make you crap yourself if they drop on you

HeHeHe, They disassemble pretty quickly, but the clean up can take a while.

Hehehe, tis the season Capt Splatt, i took out a few of these last night. This is why Australia invented the Thong (easily removed rubber sandle/footwear. Also known as Flip Flops)

Hmmm, Thongs. I'm still not sure how American's fit 'em on their bums
She's only small by rural standards, but I was still impressed.

Nice huntsman mate have you named it yet ? we have plenty where I live, the one that lives in my pool shed is the size of a starling (bird) I have named him Eddy maybe I should name it Edwina now they are harmless I like these spiders and wont let anybody harm them at my place they keep the mosquitos down and eat nastier spiders ,They wont kill you if they bite you but they rarely bite humans they are very shy and timid .Nice spider please let her live she does the work we dont like to do .I love the way they flatten out and can half their size to fit or hide in small spaces.

Swarm mate, they've all got the same names around my place. Fred if they've got 8 legs and Lucky if they've got less. (they're lucky they got away from the cat). She'll be an honoured guest until such time as she gets inside. I have a presevation policy, but I only have sway over the exterior and grounds. Once they're indoors, all new rules apply. Send us a couple of pictures of Eddy, it'll give me something to aspire to

Nice! I would be suprised to see one of these crawling around in the Netherlands I guess I'd stick to our small one inch spiders....Although I'd be interested to stand close to one (instead of looking at pics) (Now don't send me one from Australia to scare the crap out of me)!

Swarm is dead on, what an awesome creature!

Capt Splatt

I am sincerely sorry for creeping some of you out. I'll stick to cars from now on. I've just grown up with these little guys an had forgotten that they inspired quite so much fear. Still gotta admit though, she's pretty impressive. (did you notice in the first photo that there's actually a bit of red eye from the flash?)

It's only a tiny one! Come visit, I got heaps. I agree with Swarm, let her live, keep the mozzies away.

I agree with the whole inside/outside policy. I'll leave them alone in the yard, but if they come in they have to die!
