Lol I've heard terrible things about Australia. Even on TV. Snakes just slipping in to bath and shower with you. Hoggers
I saw a program and this lady had to call someone. Totally puts me off ever going to Aussie lol. Especially those beasts up there. You guys act like it is a normal occurence lol. Especially Jess..lol. Heck, the spiders here are miniscule compared to those. Heck, we get huge daddy long leg ones here sometimes. But nowhere near the size of those things...ew.
I was staying somewhere and this guy said all calmly a huge one walked into his hotel or home (while he was on holiday in Aussie) and he put a icecream container over it and the legs were still visable..He also said he just saw spiders jumping from trees and killing birds a lot. He didn't seem to mind..
We do have poisonous ones here in New Zealand. It just depends where you go. I've never seen one. But I have seen ones with a huge middle (won't go into story).
At my old house, we used to have daddy long legs at our front door all the time having babies. Gross..I know. One time I sprayed one that was pregnant and somehow babies went everywhere...disturbing. We have them at our house here too though. They go crazy at night (obviously). I've seen them running up our hallway before in the middle of the night. I just can't stand them. I try and kill all that I can. But they do run fast and hide as they do or 'play dead'. Sometimes they hang out above our bath and move around. I just can't stand them. If I see one in the middle of the night and it hides, I will stay up all night until I kill them. I just don't like them. Those 'jumping' little ones are little devils! Or those little 'claw' spiders that look like mini scorpions..those are very common here. Especially 'Daddy Long Leg' ones. They are house spiders and found everywhere
This thread reminds me of that pic Jess posted on the last forum. That humoungous spider on the toilet. Anyone remember that thread?
