Male Huntsman Spider

Male Huntsman Spider

Dear Fred,
This is a Male Huntsman Spider or Giant Crab Spider, Heteropoda venatoria.  It is sometimes called a Banana Spider because for many years, they were spread around the world when they arrived in shipments of bananas, often emerging in grocery stores.  In many parts of the world they are tolerated since they hunt at night and feed on Cockroaches.
  This submission will post live to our site next week.
