Its called a Trapdoor Spider.

I used to have a minefield of them in the backyard at an old place I rented a few years back. I remember even feeding the odd grasshopper to them in my wild youth years....

Do trapdoor spiders every try to grab human feet?
Obviously unless it was a huge spider, it wouldnt be able to do much, haha.
Just wondering if they every attempt to grab a human foot thinking its a insect/small animal walking by.

Cheers

No, as far as I know the Trapdoors lay out a fine web of silk outside the hole and sit inside feeling for vibrations. Obviously a human foot is going to cause a whole lot more vibration than a bug so the spider can tell the difference without even poking his head out.

That would be scary as hell for the other bug (cricket?).

It really amazes me the things people didn't learn about in school.
wow..
I see so much stuff posted on this web site that one would seem to believe is common sense or knowledge.
And yet I am re-suprised often.

People should just watch more nature documentaries.
