SWEET BABY BUDDHA! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!😲😱 Was it just the zoom that made it look so big; or was it actually the size of Hulk's fist? (Im terrified of spiders if u hadn't noticed, which begs the question: why did I click on this pic..why...😫)

Nope this is not a Tarantula, this is a Huntsman Spider ;)
A very cute and very pretty huntsman btw. You can be lucky for having this beauty around you.

That's a beautiful spider but it isn't a Tarantula, it is a Huntsman Spider ;).
Don't know what kind, but definitely a Huntsman Spider.

It looks like it's smiling at you.
What did you do with it when you found it?

it's super pretty,
i'd agree with huntsman, but after some research I can't find a species name.
Was that the first sighting of these spiders for you? If you be so kind to answer, in which part of India do you live? I would love more pictures

When I first saw this I thought 'holy crap is that thing for real!?' It's crazy, definitely one of the most unique-looking spiders I've ever seen I think... what seriously trips me out about it is how expressive it is (for an invertebrate) with those beady eyes just staring defiantly at you. That's why I was initially so surprised at first glance that it was legit.

How big was it? Looks like it might've been pretty crazy-large... :o

Oh wow I'm surprised! Totally expected you to say something like "big as my hand!", LOL. :XD:

And yeah, seriously I think it's his eyes; I swear I look at this picture and can imagine him just daring you to come any closer lol. ;p Anyway, very awesome pic... thanks for sharing!

What a beauty! Looks like a huntsman I saw at an exotics expo awhile back, except that one had orange markings instead of yellow.
