Critter of the Week The Rangatira Spider!

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:28 pm on 18 May 2018

We want everyone to enjoy Critter of the Week but arachnophobes may be cautious about listening today: the Rangatira spider measures 12cm across and loves to munch on weta. 

But, DOC’s Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki, will explain that nobody needs to stay awake at night worrying about it.
