Common Spiders of House & Garden poster
New Zealand Geographic
An attractive and informative poster, featuring 21 spider species likely to be encountered in New Zealand around the home. It is cleverly designed to distinguish between those which are almost always found outside, and those which have a preference for the indoor life. General information on spiders is provided, along with a descriptive caption for each species featured. Common and scientific names are given for each species, along with body length measurement (the illustrations are, fortunately, much bigger than life-size!). Native species are easily identified by the use of a kiwi logo in the description captions.
Illustrated in full colour by Dave Gunson, with text by Grace Hall and Simon Pollard.
