Brown huntsman spider

Heteropoda venatoria


It's body was about 1.5 cm long with its total length around 4 cm. It's body was mostly brown with hints of gray. Most likely this individual was a female due to the lack of black markings on the abdomen.


Found at dusk waiting on top of an automatic door that was situated under some rock work with plants growing all around.
