Grey Huntsman

.....or poke it with a tape measure in this case.
 A common visitor in these parts is the Grey Huntsman spider.

They can grow as big as a hand span.
 Huntsman spiders are fast,
and hunt quite easily upside down on ceilings or walls.
They only seem to hang around for a few days, then they disappear.

Quite an impressive spider!

I absolutely love spiders. Not this one so much though;-)
