Unknown spider ( very pretty )
November 30, 2009
About a year ago i found this spider on my back porch. I tried google-ing it to find out what type it is, but i didn’t really find anything. I understand if you can not get back to me, but thank you for your time. The spider is about the size of post-it note, and i think it is very pretty. =]
Dear A. Hamel,
We have a bit of extra time today, and we are catching up on a few random letters from the past few weeks. This is a Huntsman Spider, Heteropoda venatoria. It has a worldwide distribution thanks to stowing away on ships and naturalizing in port towns with a mild climate.
