Thanks. I didn't need to read that! I hate spiders. They are evil. And they are always looking to find me.

I don't even want to click on that video! But... I am so curious! Goddamn it. I need to face my fears and all that bullshit, yes?

My Older brother lives in an area of Arkansas that has tarantulas anyway, but apparently they love nesting in the many cedar trees surrounding his house! I mean BIG!!!! I! Hate! Spiders! I tossed a rock the size of my head on top of one, moved the rock over with my shoe......and it still LIVED!!!!! It's alive, it's ALIVE....AAAAAHHHHHHHHH! Obviously, I avoid the place whenever possible, but every family member I have knows I love scaring the hell out of people, .....and that spiders are my kryptonite Dodgy I've had this done to me.....with a REAL gargantuan....it's not funny Dodgy .....Laughat

Think this guy, but with a jump out the window, or a mad baseball bat "kill it kill it" routine!




Don't come to Australia then.

It is a rare day passing by when I don't see a White tail or a nice big Redback crawling about or hiding in a corner.

When I was younger my family used to live in a house with a nice little gate leading to the carport from the backyard. It was one of those gates made with metal tubes and pike like heads on the top. One of those nice things, it was missing a few pike-heads.

I was probably around the 10 years mark then (I honestly don't remember my age, but I was tiny, curious and stupid as all hell, so I think that age guess is reasonable), and I knew spiders knew to eat when they felt vibrations on their webs. One day while playing with a water pistol, I decided to spray a web that was on the fence.

I was disappointed. Nothing happened. I sprayed again and again, determined to see something happen. It did. A jet black spider, kinda like a Mouse spider, came suddenly out of the tube. I stumbled back in surprise and giddy as fuck, "It worked! They react to the movement!"

I sprayed the spider, it retreated back into the tube. I showed my father and he took the pistol away and told me not to anger the spider; it could kill me.
I continued to play with this thing for months when nobody was around to stop me.
At other times when I lived there, I and my friends would play with the holes of local Trapdoor spiders at the edge of my then-school grounds.

We spent our later years before my family moved playing with the Bull ants which had made my school subject to their underground reign. Mostly we tried to drown them. Poured what must have been a couple hundred litres of water from our water bottles down their nests. The Bull ants were the ones which got me. One managed to bite my little toe (I was wearing sandals that day). Fucker bit right through the nail too.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

It bit through your toe nail?! Ohmy

NO.

Fuck THAT. I hear Australia is rather pretty; I don't know if my visiting is worth the... uh... diverse wildlife I'm sure to encounter.

Oh relax, you only really find these things if you look for them, and unless you annoy them, they usually don't give a fuck.

Aside from Bull and Inch ants. If they are near you, you wont have much trouble seeing a couple big arse ants crawling along the road. but, yeah, it did. Bull Ants are big ants and have pretty powerful jaws. I'm lucky it wasn't an inch ant. I have heard of those things hospitalising people from their bites and stings.

The places more than compensate for the potential of being dead, but I would recommend visiting in the winter; It's cold and wet as fuck usually, but the spiders, snakes, ants and things are usually all hiding in warm places, away from people so they don't get disturbed.

As for that, I said it before: That guy broke the first rule of spider catching: Never attack from below, they'll just drop.

Besides, that is just a Huntsman, their not deadly at all. The worst I have ever heard from a huntsman bite victim was a few days of pain; their toxin doesn't affect people.
