for those that don't know, there are spiders fuckin everywhere here. here's a flick of one i took at my parent's place. it's currently chilling out around the lounge and kitchen area. been there for about 2 weeks. it's roughly the size of my hand

Yo i dont know about Melbourne but the spider populations are getting crazy here. Species that IU've never seen like these huge ones wth two big whites splotches on their abdomens and these nasty looking tiger striped ones.. I think its the heat

 

THe one you just posted looks like a huntsman. My eccentric neighbour caiught one in the jar and delivered it over to me to free somewhere. INstead I just fed it cockroaches and xmas beetles which it ripped out apart and made eery schreeching noises

i wouldn't have died. you've got like an hour or two before anything really bad happens. plenty of time to hook up the anti-venom. but still, it would have sucked majorly having to trek to the emergency room and get all sick and shit

 

the local football team is the redbacks. they're a bunch of white trash ultra violent drunks.
