It's very acrobatic and was running and jumping around with a giant gecko trying to eat it. It escaped by turning into a ball and dropping 6 feet to the ground, then running up the wall again behind the gecko. Now it's tucked into the corner of our ranch slider.

It's like 2-3 inches long.

It's in Southeast Queensland, Australia.

Definitely a huntsman spider (family Sparassidae)
