I love your site. I stumbled upon it while looking for sites about Tarantulas and have been hooked since.
I am icluding a few pictures of the African Huntsman(Sparassidae family) from South Africa. I just love spiders and have raised 6 Tarantulas since they were spiderlings. I also catch spiders in friends houses before they get killed and set them free. The pictures are of one of these spiders that I caught and released after feeding it. The Huntsman from South Africa.
Thanks so much for taking the time to submit these awesome photos of your South African Huntsman Spider. We really enjoyed your email championing the rights of spiders to cohabitate with humans.
