Giant Wood Spider
This variety of spiders can be seen in many parts of the world. Usually they are found in warm forest areas closer to the tropics.
This particular one was as big as my palm and usually you can spot even bigger ones. This is a female spider and the male spiders are much smaller.
I captured this picture at Sinharaja Forest.
I'm thrilled to see that above picture is picked by Conservation Carbon Company in their blog.
