Comments & ID Thoughts

Northern Thailand, found playing in the pool.
Was thinking it's a type of huntsman, we have some huge ones here but colouring and body very different. About 6 to 7 inches from toe to toe.

Hi, this is a Huntsman (Sparassidae, Heteropida sp.), the odd coloration is probably the effect of being sprayed and a misinterpretation from the camera. It was very likely not that color in life.
