Cave Spider (Cat Ba, Vietnam) - Identified as Sparassidae family, commonly called Huntsman spider or Giant Crab Spider.­

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

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

This one was in this cave on a small deserted island of Halong Bay.­

I like the reflection in two of the eight eyes of the spider.­

I found similar spiders in other caves, see here.
