Actually, the spiders in "Arachnophobia" were from across the ditch, here in NZ.

I had heard they were Huntsmen somewhere (unofficial) and they looked and moved exactly like the buggers I see round here every day. Your Delena must be a close relative but we see that a lot with other breeds as well like Whitetail/Brown Recluse, Widow/Redback/Katipo. I almost bought a keyring when I was in NZ with a Katipo set in a block of clear resin. The worst thing you have over there would have to be the sandflies in the South Island - they are absolutely legendary.

I got bit by a Whitetail about 6 seeks ago "Holy Hell! It feels like having been scolded by boiling water and the pain last for about 4 weeks!" God I hate spiders!
