One of the coolest spiders Is the Giant Huntsman Cavespider found in Laos. Hit huge and potentually extremely deadly,but it seems to be extremly docile.

I guess there are so many spiders that we ran out of real names and have to go with adjectives. Hypothetical dialog, "WTF did you see that? It was a black hairy long legged spider." "No way! That was a black hairy short legged spider."

Ah, Singapore. You have such marvelous spiders. Ours are downright boring in comparison. We hang our heads in shame.
