About the Tiger Huntsman Spider

Only the female has the tiger-like colouring. There isn't a lot of info available on these spiders. I'll look for more...

Note that dead spiders usually fade in colour, so nearly all the spiders will look blacker or darker in colour in real life than they do in the photos of dead spiders from the museum.
