Thanks so much triggsturner. They are such beautiful big spiders and we did find them on a bush shaded creek bed :) . It's great to finally know what they are.

Shana I know! I walked around the garden in winter removing the hopper eggs where I could find them, and here I am in summer using it as a model and letting it live to mature and lay more eggs!

Gilma I agree, sometimes we need to look at pests in a different way.

Yuko I love the tail too :D

Cindy I will do.

Yes that certainly sounds like our spider ForestDragon.

Thank you so much for your suggestion. And I agree they are stunning! Thanks for sharing your spotting :D.

Thanks Jill. I wondered why the colours were darker than the ones I found on image search :). Have added it to the mission.

Thank you! I love how if you get up really close to something tiny, instead of looking creepy they look soft and almost cuddly. Viv yay for Project Noah!
