Proud Mother

Huntsman spider species - Danum Valley, Malaysia

 

I'm in the airport at Lima, Peru and I have 15 min of free wifi seems like uploading a photo is a good use of that.

 

This pink huntsman (?) spider was guarding an egg case in a curled up leaf. Not very big as far as tropical spiders go but it was a cool photo opportunity. Plus I can't recall seeing any pink spiders before.
