A forest. A haunted house. A nightmare. Hell.
These are the usual places where you would expect to find a beast like this.
You’d hope not to run into one when checking your electricity meter...



Particularly one that had chosen to sit astride the monitor clutching a sac and one mammoth brood of babies.
The hair-raising picture was posted to Reddit with the caption “Energy Australia was unable to read your meter…”
It’s unclear if this is a huntsman or a wolf spider, but as Velociraptornado so eloquently puts it, “That is a whole lot of NOPE.”

lol that is just a huntsman and not even that big
you can pick them up without gloves, nothing to worry about
the get close to the size on A4 page, they eat roaches mainly so are good to have in the house.


HuffPo is really shit for what it posts from Australia (and it doesn't let us access most of it) it is not spider season at the moment (still winter here) but in spider season i could find one bigger in my yard/house/under-house

Its about spiders and playing off peoples fear of Spiders.
Just because they come from Australia does not mean they are making any views on Australia or Australians for goodness sake

They saw a picture which was posted on Reddit, which I admit would freak many people out.

How do people who won't go near any spider cope with cellar spiders? They're the ones which are very spindly and lurk on ceilings and in corners. There are loads of them around. If I was frightened of them, I'd have to move house!

They are quite thin and spindly and easy to kill.
That's how I cope.

I kill all spiders. They are useless; despite popular belief they do not catch flies - I do not have cobwebs in my house so how on earth will flies be caught? Rolling Eyes

I never kill spiders, and I hate seeing people kill them. Cellar spiders are easy to catch with a glass and a piece of paper.

you don't even live on a continent with any spiders that can kill you Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

besides they'd be right to since you are clearly a fatal threat to all spiders, all spiders should actively attack you in defense tongue tongue tongue tongue
Karma... for the spiders

This is why you're afraid of them. If you saw them as living creatures rather than the enemy, your fear would go away.

My fear is based on not liking to be surprised suddenly by them.

I don't like the meaty ones.  As a teenager we lived in a bungalow in the country and the spiders were MASSIVE.  We moved into our new house but had to go back to bath.  You won't believe how many upside down jugs and glasses I had in that bathroom

I'd come home and put my hand on the side and turn on the light and my fingers were touching a large spider, then they'd be on my bed.  I spent a lot of nights on the settee!!!!

You'll never get over your fear if you just kill them. I was like you once, although I didn't kill them. Wait until one runs down your coat or suddenly jumps out at you in your car. You'll soon decide that it's best to get over your fear of them.

I wouldn't like that either. I'm not afraid of spiders these days, but I don't want them in the house. If you're constantly having to look out for them, I'd move. Laughing

In the case of places like the American Southwest or Australia, "moving" could mean transplanting yourself thousands of miles away!

Tarantulas in the U.S.:



(of course, they exist all through the Americas south of the U.S. as well)

Huntsmen range in Australia: ( Twisted Evil )



Global distribution of black widows:



You're just being British Laughing Laughing Laughing

THE REASON that such silly stories aren't watchable down here may also have something to do with the salient fact that many Aussies simply aren't all that scared of spiders, snakes, crocodiles...

UNLIKE so many English and Euro' types..

Like eddie.

I have "pet" spiders in my bedroom, and  encourage them around the yard (the ultimate in 'natural pest control'..).

Cool
