no exo-skeleton being can grow over 4~ kilo on land. I saw a documentary about the biggest land crabs. Biggers then that they just break appart.

7 legs in front, one tucked on 'his' back left side(you may be mistaking his abdomen for the "extras";)

The cricket walked over some invisible threads of silk, That's how the spider knew exactly where it was. Perfect definition of the word Ambush.

Seriously, it look like a hand but I would run like a girl if I encounter one of these!!
BTW, is it just me or the spider is someone's pet?!

#3 The foremost limbs are pedipalps which are enlarged on most Orthognatha. If I am not mistaken this is one.

I keep several spiders like B. smithi or P. Irminia and this one looks very awesome and pretty.

Might be my next buy :)
