The little spider is creamy white, has a huge abdomen and has a distinct black cross shape on the back. About 1.5 - 2cm The bigger spider is mostly black, quite hairy and has black/ brown legs and on the abdomen some faint white markings can be seen. About 2-3cm


Found on the porch ceiling outside our house.


I don't know what these spiders are, but thought that the little one got a good feed. Took it 2 and half days to eat it.
