Though they're highly unusual, I've seen a couple of spiders like that here in Brazil. Never in urban areas though; once, on the underside of a pier, while swimming, and once while hiking. I'm not very afraid of spiders, but neither was a very pleasant experience.

I don't think I'd be able to kill a creature that big though. [Frown]

Well, I am an odd one, but it does not scare me at all. I believe in totem spirits and the spider is one of mine. (It's a long story).

I've seen spiders about 5 feet wide/long that have been found in prestoric fossils in this one museamum.

Hm, looks kinda yummy really. (I am an odd one)

The Goliath bird-eater ( Theraphosa Leblondi )

http://fergies3.newton.mec.edu/angier/Ferguson/fergies02-03/spiders/wacky.htm

ETA: Ok, not sure if the pic the guy is holding on the first link is real as he has links about photo retouching but when I did a google for "world's largest spider" the Goliath kept coming up. If it is indeed the worlds largest, then check out this:


quote:
The world's largest spider is the Goliath bird-eating spider. It lives in the northeastern South America , Venezuela and Brazil. On February 1985 Charles J. Seiderman of New York City captured a huge female. It's leg span is ten and a half inches, it's total body length is four inches and it's fangs are inch long. It's weighs a peak of 4.3 oz.

I've seen bigger. Whilst giving a class outdoors in Okinawa to my fellow soldiers in the middle of the northern jungles, one about the size of a hubcap crawled up a tree about five feet behind a friend of mine, and he screamed like a little girl when he saw it.

that is just a Huntsman Spider you get them all the time here they dont hurt you well not much they are one of the safer spiders here

quote:
Habitat:

Huntsman spiders occur Australia-wide and are usually found on tree trunks, under bark, beneath stones or on the walls of houses. Some species are extremely compressed and live between the hairline cracks of sandstone and granite outcrops.


Diet:

The huntsman eats a variety of insects, arthropods, small lizards and frogs. The prey is not captured in a web but actively stalked and run-down with stealth and speed. The fangs are large and powerful and hold the food item until it is immobilised by the spider's venom. Although bites can be painful to humans and occasionally cause mild nausea and headaches, the symptoms are usually only localized pain and swelling.


huntsman can scare the living NFBSK out of you i had one run across my windscreen while driving (on the inside )

"I could've gone my whole life without seeing those pictures and died happy, but nooooooooooooo! You're not happy unless someone, somewhere, is peeing their pants in terror! Well, congratulations! You owe me a new chair!" Also, she agrees with killing it with a gun - no way in heck is she getting close enough to spray or swat it! Same here, actually. Biiiig gun!

huntsman spiders do not make a big mess

for a big mess step on a Leopard Slug

quote:
This is the largest of the introduced slugs found in Sydney, and reaches a size of 20 cm. The name Leopard Slug is derived from the slug's dark spots on its light brown body. It feeds on dead animal tissue, cat food and pet faeces. Slugs and snails are hermaphrodites, having both male and female reproductive organs. When they mate, Leopard Slugs become entwined and lower themselves from their branch on a thread of mucus to exchange sperm. After the exchange has taken place they return via the mucous thread, eating it as they go.

Thank You! I thouhgt, that can't be real, show me what species it is, and I'll belive. I don't know how you Aussies do it! First funnel webs , now these? One's deadly, one's not, but I think I'd have an NFBSKing heart attack if I saw either one in real life! [Eek!]

I actually like spiders. Yeah, sure, I may be crazy, but I honestly don't know how you could kill something like that. Could you kill a cat? Could you kill a dog? I couldn't, and spiders are just like cats and dogs.

Hell, I can't even kill ants most of the time, much less moths that fly into my house.

How do you kill something that big? Seriously. When I lived in California I had an adolescent tarantula on my deck. It was a little smaller than my hand, but still a sizeable spider. I got the broom and nudged it off the deck. You can't stomp something that big.

From Davros' first posted link:

quote:
Reproduction:

Courtship in huntsman spiders is surprisingly romantic when compared to other spiders. The male is rarely attacked by the female and the process may last many hours. After mating, the female places her egg sack under bark or a rock and keeps guard of it until hatching. At the appropriate time, the mother spider opens the egg sack to help her spiderlings out and she may stay with her spiderlings for several weeks.

Look, romantic and a good mama too.

I don't care if it is romantic and a good mother, I don't want it in my house! All desire to ever visit Australia has died in me, now. Well, I never was that interested, anyway (no offense to the Australian members of this board!).

Seriosuly, though:
One, this isn't a board for you to vent your personal predjudices, and two, if you know how to use a gun properly, it's neither scary nor very dangerous. My parents collect guns, and I've known how to use one since my early teens. I've never shot anything but a paper target. Still, though, I'd be afraid to go anywhere near a spider like that, and spiders don't freak me out all that badly. Not the little ones, anyway; I squish and flush them with minimal trouble. A spider that size, on the other hand. . .I really think I might shoot it. I don't know for sure; I pray I never have to find out!

You can get a Redback (same as the black widow) spider in Perspex (as a gear knob) at just about any auto shop here .
I have also seen Funnelweb’s in Perspex
So you could have a Huntsman in plastic but you would be looking at something about a foot across or so

NFBSK the spiders. NFBSK them all. they're all disgusting (oh hell, there isn't a word to describe how much i hate them), and while i would never shoot one for fear of the disgusting mess it would make, if i ever found a large spider in my house, i would probably soil myself and never be able to live in that house again. i am not kidding. please forgive me if you think i'm overreacting, you can hate me and my opinion all you like, but as someone with severe arachnophobia*, i can easily say that (1) they are NOT like dogs or cats (NOT! NOT!), and (2) -

*yes, i was the dumb one for coming into this thread, but i turned off images before i did to avoid seeing anything - i just wanted to see what y'all were talking about, and to see if anyone had any good info on whatever spider you were talking about, specifically that they don't live anywhere near me.

Did anyone notice the screw to the right of the spider in the third picture. It kind of changes to scale a bit. It's still big, but not quite as big as it first appeared. To me at least.
