What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Large Spider from Australia
Can you tell me what this spider is? It measured about 10 – 11 cm. We have had a few of these visitors in the house during summer.
Thanks
Caroline

Hi Caroline,
This is one of the Huntsman Spiders, a Giant Crab Spider also known as a Banana Spider. The are secretive spiders that prowl around in the dark. They are harmless unless you are a Cockroach.
