Critter of the Week: Vagrant spiders

From the collecton Critter of the Week

The vagrant spiders are unique to Aotearoa. They are big and hairy, and they like to roam around in search of a meal.

When they’re not wandering around at night in native forests or suburban gardens, they hunker down under logs or stones.

Ellen Rykers joins Jesse to tell us all about this fascinating creature.
