    Huntsman spiders are large, long-legged spiders, measuring up to 15 centimeters across the legs. It is famed because the huntsman is the largest spider in the world by leg span. They are aerial species predominantly living inside tree trunks or under bark but are known to climb into people’s houses. They are mostly grey to brown, sometimes with banded legs. Huntsmans are generally widely distributed throughout Australia and Tasmania. Huntsmans use venom to immobilize prey. They have been known to inflict serious defensive bites on humans.
