Brown Huntsman Spider

Heteropoda cervina


brown in color, very similar to Heteropoda venatoria. Very fast walkers and climbers. Frequently mistaken as part of the tarantula group. Larger than most of the common spiders. They can be identified with their flat bodies and crab like positioning of their legs.


Commonly found in leaf litters. They are also frequently seen inside our houses along with another species of brown huntsman called Heteropoda venatoria.
