Huntsman spider Holconia immanis IMG 7526 - The sight of this spider, one of the group of large and hairy spiders that is commonly referred to as a 'Huntsman', would be enough to strike sheer terror into many people, particularly those suffering from arachnophobia, but it poses no threat to humans. Huntsman spiders are not web builders. They catch their prey by actively hunting, and can run at a considerable speed when in pursuit of an intended victim. In this image the spider was simply investigating the finger of the person who, when removing a dead frond from a palm tree, inadvertently wrecked the spider's hiding place
