    A four legged spider? Doesn't sound right to me.

    A picture would definitely help.

    Technically, it needs 8 legs to be a spider... can't be classed as a spider with only four legs unless the other four got ripped off somehow.

    Can you post a picture of it? There are many, many different species in Thailand.

    I was just thinking about what could be confused as a four legged spider... an Argiope maybe and they do have them in Thailand. Argiopes often sit with their legs paired up. I am not sure why they do this but I have seen it. They are also often striped. I need to look for pics now.
