Thanks for the id, KarenL. Sure it's not Rhescyntis hermes? Loks like a male either way.

Yep, I'll agree with wolf spider. Amazing timing! We found this one a couple of days ago...

Looks like a maple. Maybe a Norway. From Finland!

OK. I've finally found and added some close-ups of the catterpillars. Maybe that will help.

SantaLuciaReserve Jaguarundi

Hi ccm7, Juan's right, the jaguarundi is quite different from the jaguar. I'll add a link so that you can find out more about these cats. It is assumed that the amazon is crawling with them, so despite habitat loss and being hunted for their fur they are listed as 'Least Concern' by IUCN.

Hi Karen. It's quite something isn't it? I know this sort of behaviour isn't very unusual and you can find more information about wolf spider behaviour here.

I know this one isn't Australian, but the information is sound.

Hi Annvan & textless. Yes, quite a sight. Must be hundreds of the little ones. I wonder what happens to the female?
