This is a big spider from a rainforest patch at Wangi Falls in Litchfield National Park. Her body alone is about 1 1/2 inches long. How do I know she's a girl? Well, these spiders exhibit extreme sexual dimorphism. See all the little orange spiders in her web? They're her hopeful suitors. And I'm sure you can guess what happens to them after mating. :)
