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 :)
