Two striped jumper female (Telamonia dimidiata), this was huge compared to salticid proportions about 3-4cm in length! Never have I seen a jumper this big, in spiders females are bigger than males, this is their sexual dimorphism. A hoax email had spread in the 1999, that these guys killed someone and are highly venomous, but in reality they are harmless. Found this in #kukkarahallilake along the fencing, seriously the fencing holds amazing life, and armed with a bamboo stick, I poked around every corner and gap of fencing to observe the creatures living around, many people walk by these everyday but nobody notices them, so a curious mind is definitely necessary to see the unseen and know the unknown 😬.
