A Huntsman Spider Gets A Gentle Pat
Occurred on August 26, 2022 / Queensland, Australia
Info from Licensor: "I am a wildlife photographer and science communicator. I went looking for one of Australia's largest species of spider, the Giant Green-bellied Huntsman. One individual was so large and pregnant that she didn't care about anything touching or trying to move her, so she allowed me to pat her. It was a good opportunity to show that they are not dangerous and don't want to bite or attack humans."
