I'm in Australia, is this a dangerous spider. What type is it
its just a cool dude spider. Legit the only spider that is dangerus in AUS is the nsw funnelweb. fuck all of the snakes are dangerous ether, go look up bites vs snake deaths. australia is safe and only bogans love to brag how dangerous it is.
OP here, all you spider loving blokes remind me of this story
do they catch cockroaches? I saw a cockroach in my room, they're fucking putrid
I'm also a little para that my roommate is putting bugs in my room to make me feel like I have bug under my skin (I use ice and I think he knows lmao)
>>is this a dangerous...?
Cockroaches are actually some of the cleanest bugs out there, but yeah that spider will eat them.
What is ice exactly?
If you say artificial weed, I'm gonna have to come visit you and smack you on the head.
Well of course invasive species are bad, but geckos are generally pest control.
huntsman bites do hurt. that's why i brush them outside with a broom instead of POKING THEM WITH MY FUCKING INDEX FINGER AND SHOUTING HAY WHO'S A CUTE LITTLE SPIDER THEN! CRIKEY, HE'S A BIGGUN!
As a fellow Aussie and someone who has grown up with huntsmen and funnelwebs everywhere, there is no fucking chance in hell that's a hunstman.
This is what a huntsman looks like, I don't know what the fuck everyone else is on about.
I was going on the looks of european huntsmen spiders. Like pic related.
>Cockroaches are actually some of the cleanest bugs out there
but they're contagious and have disgusting bodies
Some of them fly
Slap them really hard, and pus comes out
When you think they're dead, they're still moving their spiky legs
If that's not bad enough, they can communicate with each other through antennas
They can also survive nuclear explosions
I cringe every time
This guy gets it.
The rest of you are retarded.
I realized when I saw your picture.
I live with several of the ones in my picture.
I never thought we'd get spiders that big here in Denmark, but experience has taught me otherwise.
I can hear the walking across the floor and the make a bonk sound if they fall.
>leave it be
Dont make any assumptions about australian wildlife, ever.
You need a plan of action to get that thing out or it will come down tonight and eat your eyes in your sleep.
If its beyond you, for gods sake get professional help
Hi anon here, that's not a Huntsman spider. That spider is extremely poisonous. One bite off of that and you'll die in few minutes. Not kidding! Did some research on Google. Get it out immediately!
Which part of australia are you in?
Also I just read an article about australian spiders you can meet in your house. A general rule of thumb is that if they are crawling up walls or ceilings, they're not really that dangerous.
White tails actually have a decent poison that causes your skin to rot. The wound site is very difficult to contain and people have lost whole limbs for what looks like a harmless little spider.
Not saying that is a white tail, but dont take any risks
Looks like a mouse spider fellow AUsfag pretty sure that they are dangerous but not deadly but wouldn't risk it anyway
>Some of them fly
I him them the fuck back to the floor where they belong.
I don't kill them because i feel pity for them.
Thats one of those weird spiders that chill by rivers n shit. I say kill it.all It probably does is smoke lsd laced pot in its van by the river listening to zeppelin records all day.
There are at least 2 dozen species of spider that will ruin your week. None are really fatal, just permanently disfiguring.
And snakes in australia are completely fatal without medical intervention.
You are an inner city urbanite hipster faggot if you dont know this.
So is every day a gamble that you're gonna get rekt?
Or is it only in certain places?
If you chop up a tree and leave the logs in your back garden for a week or so, is it gonna have deadly spiders and snakes and jellyfish in it when you come back to it?
Legit arachnoligist here, it's a really starved huntsman spider. Looks like the Delena cancerides I work with. It's not dangerous and they're super common in Australia.
Wrong. I thought the same at first but it's just reduculously skinny which makes it look weird. You can tell by the shape of its carapace and the proportional size of its legs as well as its large chelicera.
Go play with the snakes then farmboy.
I live on the urban fringe. Lost 3 dogs to snakes. And the reason people dont die from snakebite is because we did pretty well removing them from urban areas...and ambulances carry anti-venom
Here's the Wikipedia pic to back me up.
Also OP, it's a boy and probably close to death. If you wanna catch him you could feed him some flies or tiny bugs and shit.
Don't worry, I know how you feel.
I react the same way with people who like horses.
Everyone knows horses are some of the most insidious predators out there, luring young children to ride them so they can run off and eat them elsewhere.
Remember when this happened? No, yeah, fuck Australia.
ALL spiders are venomous you complete moron.
All of them. But, only a few are fatal or harmful to humans. House spiders are venomous. Daddy long legs are venomous. Just not venomous enough to hurt us.
