Can anyone ID this beastie beyond, a spider. The body is about the width of my thumbnail. It made a huge web and has been dining very well.
We are planning to move from Australia to Turkey in February, i have my father in law staying with us here in OZ from Turkey – as he is a milliyetci nothing is better than living in Turkey according to him – and has told us atleast Turkey doesnt have large poisonous spiders like Australia does – thank you for this photo ive since shown him inwhich is assured me “O orumcek fazla beslenmis” hence the size …
That spider is harmless. We found it it is Araneus diadematus, a European Garden Spider. Yes, I guess it ate too much!
