Having been in Colombo for a few weeks I returned to our ‘jungle pad’ in Tangalle to find a spider had spun a vast web by our front door. There are often spiders around here, as we do live in a jungle. However, this chap has all the characteristics of a venomous one.
Pointy legs, fangs, large abdomen, and, perhaps most alarmingly, bright red markings on his (her?) underside, similar to the infamous red hourglass mark on a Black Widow.
Ah, the tropics.
