Advertisement Hi everyone, I was advised to start a new thread on this to get more answers. I'm always looking for wildlife to take photos, especially macros for insects. I came across a spider I have never seen before, while hiking in the Blue mountains. So, while on the net doing research to figure out what kind of spider it is, i came across this forum. The closest spider this specimen resembles is a tarantula (I am no expert, so forgive me if i am far off). Head to abdomen, it was about 2 inches. It was quite docile, as it allowed me to get really close to it without it freaking out. So, what specie is this? Could it be a Jamaican Tarantula?
