Six legged Spider, Thomankuttu - Nov 2008

This Giant Wood Spider ( Nephila Maculata ) I spotted at Thombankuttu had only six legs. Their webs can be found hanging from branches of trees throughout the Thommankuthu jungle.

Why only six legs ???
This spider is reported to be harmless to humans. This species of spider spins one of the largest web.
