    wow, now thats natural camoflage! In most of the photos its hard to even tell its a spider without looking hard. The third one shows it off best, I think :)

    What a freaky looking thing! Resembles Jabba the Hutt, in an arachnoid way (especially in that second shot). How big would the spider be? It actually looks pretty large in the pics

    Edit: Ahhh, just noticed you're from South Africa...your spiders are considerably larger than what we usually find in North America

    Yep , I almost missed the guy... walked past it to snap the waterfall(You can see it blurred in the background in the fourth photo) without even noticing it... I saw the critter on the way back moving to zap a fly trapped in it's web
    Yep I'm from south africa... I agree, it does look like Jabba the Hutt :lol:. The critter was about 1.5 inchs long :confused:
    Thanks :mrgreen:
