HUNTERS OF THE NIGHT 🕷️
At night, the rainforest on Mt. Tamborine is teeming with life- problem is, animals often perceive your presence way before you spot them. However, even then they might stay still and allow you to get close enough to look them in the eye- which is no hard task if they have as many as eight.
This is (my best guess) a brown huntsman spider (Heteropoda jugulans), highly common in Southern Queensland- even in heavily urbanized areas. Huntsmen (family Sparassidae) are perhaps my favorite spiders- they are incredibly fast and agile, running and climbing swiftly to chase down their prey or take the best spots for silent ambush (the latter goes for this particular species). In fact, these skillful predators do not build webs, but instead mostly hunt by sight thanks to the keen vision of their two rows of eyes. 🕷️
Generally, huntsman spiders are recognizable for their "crab-like" legs that are often bent forward- not particularly evident in this individual, but still visible. This ine was also relatively small- many huntsmen can reach a truly staggering size, with a maximum of over 30 cm leg span for what is considered the largest spider in the world (Heteropoda maxima from Laos). 🕷️
As big and "scary" as huntsman spiders are- with countless viral photos and videos on social media- they pose no threat to humans whatsoever. On the contrary, they serve as a great pest control- one of these voracious hunters alone can eat many insects a day, even much bigger ones than itself. These spiders were high up on my list of Australian wildlife to see- way higher than kangaroos or koalas, for that matter. Now that I finally checked that box off... I can't wait to encounter more of them!

A bonus workout for my final exercise from this morning’s 1-hour gym sesh with a 10lb weighted ball. Arms day 🤙
For the full workout see in stories at top of page.
Working out this early in the morning is great in a number of ways. For myself it includes forming the habit of waking up as early as humanly possible which is good for so many obstacles in the average day. Example, I have to get up early to get to work on time. It helps tremendously in that regard. It increases the odds of me even getting a workout in for the day because I do it first thing instead of trying to fit it in through the day around so many other tasks that will inevitably manifest.
Working out in the morning trains me mentally and physically because of the challenges in getting to the woods early enough to better my chances encountering the game I’m hunting that day. Team Deerecon

Human speaking. 🙋🏼♀️ I‘d love to share one of my favorite moments of our joint adventures outdoors: ironically it’s the moment we arrive back home at the staircase of our apartment building.
After months of irregular outings (sometimes daily, sometimes weekly) this has become an established constant which Roland seems to anticipate and enjoy a great deal.
As soon as the front door closes he demands to be let out of the backpack. I unleash him and he joyously speeds up the first flight of stairs, then waits for me. That’s why you see him coming towards me as I couldn’t film as fast as he was gone.
This routine is one of my faves, as it seems to deepen our bond while he‘s off leash. I am planning to let him explore without a leash in the future in secure areas, but it is way to soon, as I don’t feel comfortable enough yet. These few seconds up the stairs after a nice adventure outdoors seem to be a great start.
(I excluded the sound as I am proudly praising him in high pitched voice like the crazy catmom I am.)
Any fellow catexplorers reading this? Please feel encouraged to share your experiences regarding off leash moments. I‘m grateful for your insights.
