oooo I love spiders.
Here's some i photographed hanging around our backyard.
funny enough these bastards are everywhere in south west wa... also quite common in the gardens in sydney cbd.
not deadly.. you'd probably die from the heartattack instead of the bite
These ones are pretty fat and juicy.. but i have seen larger.
back in yr5 ( i think i was like 11 ) our science class was studying spiders.
For some unknown reason we were encouraged to bring spiders in we catch at home, we had a large fishtank we'd put them in and study them. Of course
some kinds came in one day with redbacks and whitetails and that bit of fun immediately stopped. But not before we had a collection of spiders...
huntsman, orbweavers, wofl spiders.
One day during sports i had to run back to the classroom to get my hat, and i couldnt resist looking into the spider tank.
crap, i accidently hit the glass top and it falls in.. no way im putting my hand in there.. ill just run away pretending it wasnt me.
the next morning i come to class a friends runs up explaining somehow all the spiders got out.
I go into the class room and yep.. all the spiders are gone. in the top corner of our class room is an orbweavers who's spent the night making this
f'kn huge cirqular web. IT was awesome.
but the best part?
was watching the girls FREAK OUT when they'd find a huntsman in their desk trays! bahahaha
