Giant Crab Spider - Alice Heelan

This huntsman (or giant crab spider) was on our bathroom wall, giving everyone a fright. Mum trapped it and I put it outside to photograph. I had to be quick because they are lightning fast. Also known as 'tarantulas', they like to run across the car dashboard or the curtains.
