    A new pet???

    In a friends garden. It's been there for weeks, so eventually I got out the macro and flash and did the dirty.
    Currently this thing has an 8' web - that's FEET (no pun intended, I measured the web yesterday evening).
    I almost feel that this spider could take ME for a walk. with its legs out (the flash bothered it and it retracted it's legs) it's close to two inches across.
    If I found this in my bedroom, I would move out (and it could help me with my luggage).
    Any experts out there can help identify it? Found in Grand Cayman, Caribbean. Thanks.

    This may be Peter Jackson's "Shelob".
    Not attractive. Will now skip breakfast.

    Hi Mark,
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - and this monster has plenty eyes.
    All the better to see you with (I know, mixing my fairy tales)
