At last, the weather has begun to warm up again after a few cold week or so.
These two spiders are taking advantage of the porch light to do some easy hunting.

This little lady paid me a visit as I was sitting outside observing moth activity on Tuesday night.
She's very similar in colour and body shape to the Little Striped Wolf (Lycosa furcillata) but much larger. Around 2cm from head to tail so I suspect she is Lycosa sp. possibly godeffroyi, (Garden Wolf) which are widely distributed.
Another Huntsman. The little arrow on this shot is pointing to some staining on the jaw hairs. Probably gravy! :-)
Thanks to some outside expert assistance, I now have a fair idea as to the correct identity of this particular species I'm encountering frequently here.
