G-day, yeah I know ouu gross,lol,but I'm doing
a few photo's on her, because she was amazeing
in size, Lets start with her name
Black & yellow Argiope ( Argiope aurantia)
males are 1/4-3/8" (5-9mm) in size
Females 3/4-1,1/8" (19-28mm)or are supost to be
but she put some turantulas to shame in size
she was bigger then my hand,over 6" long 150mm
her abdomen was bigger then a golf ball,she had
stretch mark because she was so full of eggs,
you'll see what I mean with the rest of the post
she looks normal, but she's anything but normal
as you will see

I hope you enjoy , don't gross out to much lol
have a great day hugs Tina :0)@-}-- MUAH!!!

That is one HUGE arachnid! Too bad there is nothing near her to show scale. She sounds tremendous from your description.
