now THATS a spider

I was talking to some one recently who had a spider living on their window. Their descriptions of it were such as my reaction was "well, gee, I think you should kill that".

I'm not normally worried about the typical spiders we get here in Australia around the house, but when she  showed me a picture she'd taken of it (cos I was curious if she could show me that) I was more sure "I don't want THAT around my house thanks!"



Zoomed in more you can see it has quite good fangs.


bloody nora.

Anyone know what it is? (well dead now, but what it was)

Oh My God! I thought spiders like this only exist in movies. I certainly would not want THAT around my house either. Gives me chills.

Mate, I set them on fire before asking about their family roots. If there is one thing that gets me totally frazzled, it's these buggers! Snakes, I can cope with and even like. Spiders? Gaaaaaah!

Ack! That's a nasty looking thing. Possibly a Mouse Spider http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_spider - hard to tell with a shot through a screen.

Will be looking for spiders everywhere for the rest of the day now :-)
