{japopup type="image" content="images/CIMG0064.JPG" title="Huntsman Spider" }CIMG0064{/japopup}Eastern Crete - We've got a new visitor! Apparently it's called a Huntsman Spider.

It's about the size of my hand and only has six legs either through trying to mate with something beyond his match or getting attacked by an eagle or some other larger creature that was not afraid to approach such a huge beast. We have called him Attilla the Hun(tsman). He absolutely beats anything that comes near him. We are both staying well clear.

Is there a spider expert on the island than can advise us please? If Attilla the Huntsman eats Mossies we will love him forever but if he takes a fancy to human flesh we may respond differently.
