    Bloody horrible things. The only good spider is a dead one imho.

    The ones here don't just scare you though, if they bite you, you end up dropping dead from the ****ers.

    Mind you that one looks like a big Huntsman, which are pretty harmless.

    I honestly think I'd **** myself if I ever saw one of those Huntsman ****s in real life.

    If you park your car outside near a tree you always end up with one of thse bastards crawling over your windscreen as you're driving somewhere later on. The worst time is the moment it takes to work out the bloody thing is on the outside, not the inside.

    Here's a nice link to a chart with a few of the lovelier spiders we have on it.

    The Funnel Web is a cracker. Best handled by visiting Englishmen without gloves. Slipping one into a mate's shoe is highly recommended as a practical joke.

    I read somewhere the other day that their bite is so deep that they don't come off if you try to get rid of them once they've bitten you. Amongst all the other problems being bitten by a funnel web brings, that must be the icing on the ****ing cake!

    I've seen redbacks on doorhandles too, the sly bastards!

    If I was stupid enough to move to Australia to live, I would carry a gun even in my own home.

    The threat of poisonous things that try to kill you and Jono hiding in your toilet is too great.

    Walked straight into the web of a redback a while back when I was walking through my dad's workshop at night and just about to head to sleep. Best way to wake yourself up.

    Soft. You just get the joint sprayed and they don't come around for a few months.

    Do starfish have some sort of mouth?

    Either way, I bet they're holding on tight.
