Description - Which New Zealand Spider? by Andrew Crowe

A simple way to identify New Zealand's native and introduced spiders

In this companion to his award-winning Which New Zealand Insect? Andrew Crowe showcases New Zealand spiders, with practical details on how, when and where to find them.

The author continues in his typically entertaining style to weave in many odd and surprising facts - such as how best to eat big spiders, which ones fly, and how to use spider webs for catching fish or for stopping bullets.

Some 60 New Zealand spiders and their relatives (both common and rare) are covered; described here and illustrated with 130 photographs.
