I just saw this spider in my bathroom. I was wondering what kind of spider is this and if it is venomous.

Country: Bangladesh

Only three Sparassidae (huntsman spider) species have been observed in Bangladesh on iNaturalist. Only one looks anything like the individual in your photo: Heteropoda venatoria. I venture it's a male based on the dark brown patterns on its prosoma and the overall body's lighter brown color. Most spiders are venomous, but according to a University of Florida IFAS publication, this spider isn't dangerous to humans. Hopefully this helps.

This is a huntsman spider , which is venomous but it's affect on humans is not so reactive , it's not can cause several symptom like itching, swelling,in more severe vomitting and nausea like , It was a coincidence to identify it because my cockroach also have the same upper structure like it so. I thought it should have some relation and the results were **these are cockroach eating ** I didn't know the exact reason behind this unique relation
