6 Legged Spider??!!
This was on our beach chair on an island in The Maldives in February, can you tell me what sort of Spider this is? I’m assuming it’s lost 2 legs ! I’ve got 3 pictures but they’re too large to send together so this is 1 of 3 …. Many thanks,
We can’t be more specific than that this is a Huntsman Spider or Giant Crab Spider. They are hunting spiders that do not build webs, and are generally not fond of brightly lit locations. We are guessing it had taken shelter in the chair and was surprised suddenly to be sunbathing.
