    anything that looks like that must want to die, you would be doing it a favour

    my husband has been through his spiders of australia book and thinks that it is probably a a flower spider and not venemous. we live by the rule, if its black kill it!!!!!( white tips and female red backs which are the ones you need to watch for):shocked: if its near the house move it carefully to the end of the garden, if it comes back then kill it!:cute:

    dont know what that spider is sorry, but i know ive got lots of wolf spiders if that helps! way to many holes in garden which they live in...infact i found a female wolf spider tonight with baby spiders on her back, tried to catch it and all the baby spiders fell of her which is not good (google says they carry approx 100 babys on there back) imagine 100 small things going in every direction and the wife screaming in your ears...not good and then the wife finds another in the toilet...oh and ive found red backs, mouse spiders, and huntsman's still to find a white tip...with all that dont thing i will be sleeping tonight

    Yes, we live by that rule too, all black must die immediately but we thought (well Nathan thought) this was happy doing his own thing and deserved to live. I will now be wearing shoes outside until he reappears for me to accidentally stand on him!

    Oh my goodness

    that is what you call a spider. If my daughter were to see that she would have a fit. We are moving to flagstaff. Hope I dont find a spider like that in our garden. If you hear someone scream you will know its me Lol!

    We had Harvey the Handicapped Huntsman on the door outside our kitchen yesterday - four legs on one side and only one on the other (think he'd had a run in with the sliding door mechanism!) - he was still managing to get around though! Amazing creatures (as long as he's outside not in!!!)

     

    I'm one of the world's biggest arachnaphobes (sp?) and was lying in bed last night when a very fine spindly daddy long-legs type spider ran up and down my arm! Was incredibly brave and just splatted him without going into hysterics! Did feel a bit tickly for the rest of the night though...

    Have you considered not killing OR keeping! As in just setting it free somewhere else? It looks massive tho - how big was it?

    Poor little critter, I actually thought it was really quite beautiful in a macabre sought of way.

     

    Do not kill it!
