GIANT HUNTSMAN SPIDER
The giant huntsman spider is a spider of the Heteropoda genus, (Hederopoda maxima, from maximus, meaning “the largest”). It is considered to be the world’s largest spider based on leg-span. The largest spider by mass is the Goliath bird-eater. The giant huntsman spider is typically a cave dweller and was discovered in Laos in 2001.
The giant huntsman spider can be found in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Southeast Asia, The Mediterranean, Florida, and Hawaii. They are commonly spotted in sheds, garages, and others places that are not often disturbed. The giant huntsman spiders can live, on average, for 2 years. They feed on insects and invertebrates. Though they don’t eat humans, they can bite them. Their bite can be painful and cause swelling of the bite site. The effects can also include nausea, headaches, vomiting, and heart palpitations.
