Tegenaria duellica (Giant House Spider)

Giant House Spider (Agelenidae: Tegenaria duellica = T. gigantea) Male

Body length ~15mm, leg span ~75mm (3 inches)without legs being straight!

First saw this creature, early morning while awaking from sleep. Spider was on ceiling close to window with curtains drawn. Light coming through top of curtains cast a shadow of the spider making it look more like a huge bird eating spider to my blurry eyes - I wondered whether I was dreaming as it disappeared when I got up. A few days later I found this creature on the wall of my bedroom and had to photograph it as evidence as my family just thought it was in my dreams.

Lens: Tamron SP 90mm F/2.5 model 52BB
