we found this spider in our ride on mower and was wondering what type of spider it was, it was about the size of an average hand.
You are correct. This is a Huntsman Spider in the family Sparassidae. We located a visual match on the Insects of Brisbane website that is identified as the Mountain Huntsman Spider, Isopeda montana and it is also pictured on the LifeUnseen website.
