I hope our own OzPar doesn't suffer from arachnophobia. 🙂

Spectacular GG ... We get that here as well on odd occasions when the temperature and humidity are right but not on such a large scale ... I have photo`s from 2 years ago in North Berwick

We are forever shaped by the Children we once were

I`m not putting down your Huntsman but the Funnel Web Spider can kill a man in eight seconds just by looking at him.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.
Unlike the rest of you squares.

Huntsmen and funnel webs are a normal part of everyday life here in Oz. You get used to them, just as you get used to snakes in the undergrowth and sharks beyond the surf line or crocodiles in rivers up in the far north.

I have a sturdy one-foot long blue-tongue lizard that spends the summer months patrolling my garden. On first sighting it, you would want to run a mile, but he`s a friend. He eats the spiders and mosquitos... and we live in perfect harmony.

We dont have any preditors to worry about. I think the fox or maybe eagles are 2nd top of our food chain.

My lad has had a couple of close encounters with bears in Whitehorse.
