"Funnel Web Spiders!" Australia and Oceania Warnings Or Dangers Tip by RamSter

  Funnel Web Spider
by RamSter

Found Especially in and around Sydney Suburbs, This nasty looking spider is our nastiest arachnid, is extremely agressive,especially if cornered,where it will rise up & strike with its huge fangs & should never be approached.It has caused many deaths over the years until the anti venom was discovered.It has been found in homes looking for a mate, I have only seen one once at the Sydney Botanical Gardens Running on the floor, i approached it with a stick and it was EXTREMELY aggresive- keep away.. The female of the species is much larger than the male ,but the male is 6 times deadlier.

Though dont fear it is VERY rare to see/be bitten by them.
