For those of you who haven't run screaming from the room yet, its a Huntsman Spider and this one is about 12cm long including its legs but apparently they can get bigger and are really common.
Whilst 12cm isn't that big compared to, say, me and a big stick, nothing with that many legs has any right to be that big especially when it looks at you like it wants to eat your liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
Anyway, I've been told that whilst they can give you a nasty bite they aren't in the least bit poisonous and wouldn't even make you ill if it sunk its fangs into your tender flesh.
Hmm... yeah... somehow still not comforted.
