Female Argiope Appensa, also known as Hawaiian garden spiders or Banana spiders, are orb weaver spiders, genus Argiope. The genus includes rather large and spectacular spiders that have often a strikingly coloured abdomen and are well distributed throughout the world. Most countries in temperate or warmer climates have one or more species, which look similar.

Despite it's scary (if not beautiful. I prefer beautiful, actually...) and large appearance, Argiope are harmless. Like most garden spiders they eat insects, and they are capable of consuming prey up to twice their size. They might bite if grabbed, but other than for defense they do not attack. Their venom is not regarded as a serious medical problem for humans, indeed, they often contain a library of polyamine toxins with potential as therapeutic medicinal agents. Among these, the notable Argiotoxin ArgTX-636 (A. lobata).
