Huntsman Spider - Sparassidae - Cave Spider (Borneo)

If you can identify the exact species, please post a comment or email me!

Photo taken in Lang Cave, in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo)

Scale: about 5 inch diameter (including the legs), i.­e.­ about the actual size on a standard computer monitor.­

Photo of another spider of the exact same species.­

I found similar spiders in other caves, see here.

Remember: Spiders are our friends: they eat mosquitoes and other disease-carrying insects, and they almost never attack or harm people.­

They are nice and friendly, they just have a bad reputation because they look spooky with their 8 legs and their 8 eyes :)

Remember, spiders are good for people.­ They eat mosquitos and other desease-carring insects and they almost never bite people.­ They are nice and friendly, they just have a bad reputation because they look spooky with their 8 legs and their 8 eyes :)

Don't kill spiders! If you find one in your house, leave it alone or gently take it outside.­ Remember, spiders are your friends, they catch and eat mosquitos.­
