What the Fuck is This???
I caught this dude in my shower cubicle a couple of weeks ago, in Tissamaharama. Anyone know what kind of a spider it is? It was about two thirds the size of my hand, and each leg is about the length of one of my fingers (the pic above’s about life-size or a bit larger). What is really weird — and which I’ve never seen before — is its front pair of legs. As you can see in the pic, these legs are folded, and if not, would be much longer than the other legs. There’s also some sort of pincer or claw on the end of these front legs, like a crab or scorpion. In addition, it’s got long antennae, like a lobster or crab, and moved sideways like the latter. I’ve shown this picture to many people, including a wildlife photographer, but no one has a clue. Any ideas?
