Heteropoda Boiei by melvynyeo Heteropoda Boiei by melvynyeo
Found another Heteropoda Boiei in Permai Rainforest resort.
Lichen Huntsman (Heteropoda Boiei)
As adults, huntsman spiders do not build webs, but hunt and forage for food: their diet consists primarily of insects and other invertebrates, and occasionally small skinks and geckos. They live in the crevices of tree bark, but will frequently wander into homes and vehicles. They are able to travel extremely fast, often using a springing jump while running, and walk on walls and even on ceilings. They also tend to exhibit a “cling” reflex if picked up, making them difficult to shake off and much more likely to bite. The females are fierce defenders of their egg sacs and young. They will generally make a threat display if provoked, but if the warning is ignored they may attack and bite.

Quite the cool creature, its spots kind of remind me of a leopard. Except it's brighter than a leopard, so maybe more like 70s-style print or something. Really cool face picture!
