Gotta love living in this country. Was just bringing me shopping in from the car when I noted a rather large huntsman trying to carry the vehicle off!!!!

Gawd I hate spiders .... it looked something like below ....

Ugh - James squashed at least two black widows and a fully occupied egg sack on our back walk yesterday. Shudder...

Black Widows can kill humans. You should be careful messing around near them.

We quite often find Red Back spiders around the place here, they are very similar I believe... and YUCK they are horrible, but the big hairy ones are worse ewwww spiders.. so freaky.

I like widows.
merry Widows are nice....

That's one good thing I like about living in the UK, we don't have all these deadly snakes and spiders over here. :)

Yes, I am aware. Wish we didn't have them here, but apparently we do. Last time I saw one was about 5 years ago in the kids' outside toybox - I'd hoped that was the last time ever. :(

Yeah.

And I HATE spiders, though I usually tolerate the little guys in the house and around the property. Apparently James knew from my face and/or tone that I wasn't joking when I saw the one in the toybox. It really is a bright red hourglass and it FREAKS YOU OUT when you see it...

Yeah, I've seen 'em, I've run from 'em, and I've stomped on 'em.... depending on what kinda mood I was in when I saw 'em.
uugghh

Urgh.. in the toybox!!!

We had a Red Back under the sofa once.. that was bad enough, but I would have freaked out if I found one in my son's room. *does the heebee jeebee shake*

It was an outdoor toybox, in the play area that surrounds the swing/clubhouse structure. Still VERY heebee Jeebee worthy though!

You gotta love huntsman Jethro, they are like big pet spiders, they are quite friendly :)

We get quite a few Redback spiders done here in South Australia.
Always have to be careful with the little one when outside.

Mate I'm a kiwi, anything over about half an inch is a monster :eek: Naturally being arachnophobic I've moved to Australia :oops:

Don't you guys have problems with white tails as well?
