My wife noticed this gigantic spider when she went to take a shower. After assuring that she was ok, I grabbed my camera. It was about 3 inches across.

This is a Huntsman Spider or Giant Crab Spider in the family Sparassidae. Most are harmless, but there are some tropical species that are quite poisonous. Ryan PHotographic has some images taken in Fiji.
