Found this eggplant hidden away amongst the vegetation and realised it had someone living in it.
Can you tell what it is?

I thought I found what had happened with this spider - shed skin and a big one behind the potting mix...
...but then I started finding them hiding all over the place...
Once in a lifetime experience Rob lol. It's taken me 58yrs to experience this one.
I too like huntsmen. My mother used to pick them up on her hand and move them to a safer location around the house. She freaks at a cockroach though ;)
That's brilliant Lissa! I kind of want a huntsman living in one of my eggplants now.
Not throwing out a good eggplant because of one inhabitant! ;) Besides, all life has a place in the garden and this one catches insects.
It was a spider. Probably a smallish huntsman I would guess - I never did meet it in person. I left the fruit sitting outside and checked on it later in the evening. The spider had gone hunting so I now have my fruit, spider free. Hope he/she didn't come back later and discover their home gone. So clever to have utilised the caterpillar eaten hole as a little safe home for a day.
I think the correct answer is - "Ehewww! Dat's nasty! Who cares? Chuck it in the bin and export it to the tip." :-)
Is that a tarantula?
Good grief - are those feet hanging out of the big hole? The suspense is killing me ;-)
Here's another pic that might help
