Tarantula type in villa ?North cyprus

Postby Niknak2 » Tue Apr 30, 2019 10:44 am

Last night we came home to find this spider in the bathroom it was rather large and sort of jumped off the wall when i screamed its body was the size of a small mouse i would say, ive added pics to see if anyone knows what it is. The villa is very close to the mountain area.
I am so scared we will see more, luckily my mum wasnt phased at all and took it outside. Apologies for my daughter who threw her clothes at it,the pics dont do it justice it was huge

Nothing more than just an. .. obese spider. As far as I know there are no poisonous spiders in Cyprus.

They eat these things in Cambodia as deep fried.

Is it a 'GC' or 'TC' tarantula?
No wait... maybe it's just Cypriot Tarantula from the Island of Cyprus?

mmm..
