Sparassidae Photos - Huntsman of All Species

    Exactly - usually when the rare occurrence of an escapee (most often a Sparassidae - my vents are screened {D ) I get a bit frustrated when it gives chase - when I was packing that one up for you I intentionally did not catch it right away to watch those precision landings. I wish I would have taken some video. When I finally decided to catch it - there were one or two jumps before it crawled on the underside of the table and I cupped it.

    im not huge on huntsman but i do like them but this purple one does it for me
    i want to get a couple of those very very nice looking
  4. Hopefully I'll be able to post my own photos of some of the purple Sparassid species tomorrow. I have had the worst PC problems imaginable - after trying to repair it for over a week of downtime, I bit the bullet today and bought a new one. To my surprise, I received a shipment of some rare Sparassids and others and will be picking them up tomorrow morning after a drive to Baltimore.

    Can't wait to see what has come in.

    Immanis I think. Found it while camping. Was a mature male and died, unfortunately. But not before sorting out a few crickets.
