Some sort of Tarantula. Brown body with shiny silky legs. Including its leg span, was probably about 4 or 5 inches (as big as my palm).


Caribbean, found all over the island. This one was actually near the house. The green thing is a bean bag.


This was on my shoulder, got there from my towel. Must have been in the bedroom hunting cockroaches.

All spiders belong to the group Arthropods. I've moved it there for you :-)
