Gotta Love Australia…

 

… and all its creepy crawlies… Whoa, people! Honestly, I rather have a house full of mice than a hand full of spiders like this!

The huntsman is a common spider down here and I have seen my fair bit of them but never one that size. I’m not sure what I would do if I would. I think I might actually beat Usain Bolt’s record running away… but then I would have to save my children too (hubby can look after himself, he’s a big guy…). So maybe I would burn down the house… but then we’re renting and that wouldn’t end well…

I just don’t think those spider sprays will do with one of those! Who knows, it might be the baby in its family!!!

Running is probably the best option…

Spiders And Australia

Australia is truly a wonderful country. I have to admit though, that some of it’s “locals” are a bit scary. Now, Spanishwoods recently asked me about spiders in Australia and when I saw this picture I immediately thought of her…

You should never truly believe what’s posted on certain social media channels but believe me, this creepy thing is actually real and the size is… well… it actually is like that!

Now, please excuse me, I need to go check the rooms… after all it’s bed time soon…

 

Red Back Spider – Did You Know…

… That only the bite of a female red back spider is dangerous? They can cause serious illness and have caused deaths. However, since Redback Spiders rarely leave their webs, humans are not likely to be bitten unless a body part such as a hand is put directly into the web, and because of their small jaws many bites are ineffective.

  
 Still hope I never really encounter one… And wondering how I would be able to know the difference between a female and a male one…
