Hi, this is a Banded Argiope (Argiope trifasciata). 🙂

Spiderlegs

That resembles a Kukulcania Hibernalis, formerly know as Filistata Hibernalis and comes from the family of Filistalidae. If you gather around 37 of these little creepy little creatures and cook them over a spoon Bic lighter fire they’ll feed you for a day or so.
