Macro of a Huntsman Spider - Sparassidae - Cave Spider (Borneo)

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

Another photo of the same spider.­

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 :)
