Monkey-like Orb Weaver

Neoscona punctigera

Description:

A very hairy 'chilled' spider

Habitat:

Hibiscus leaf in the garden

Notes:

I noticed this spider yesterday morning in the garden but did'nt disturb it but today when I found it 'chilling' in the same spot I thought perhaps it was dead. A gentle poke proved me wrong
