Heteropoda venatoria


Large spider (4 in. including the legs). The body is not very hairy, but the legs have erectile setae, each of which is marked with a black dot. The spider is not considered dangerous, but it does deliver enough venom to give a painful bite. Besides insects it has been known to prey on scorpions and bats.
