Huntsman Spider

Delena cancerides


Light brown and grey, covered in dense fine hairs. The Huntsman's body may be up to 4.5cm and it's legs may reach up to 20cm in length.


Found across Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.


Photographed in Avalon, New South Wales. I was staying here with my relatives and this Huntman was about a metre away from where I was sleeping... just imagine my reaction when I awoke to find it there!
