Just caught this little deadly beauty in my laundry - normally they don't come wandering inside till the summer is upon us but yet, here we are in August with the most dangerous spider in the world having a little look-see inside my parents' house. Oh, and I can't take any more photos - he's dead. There's just no good reason for letting these little mongrels live when they come sneaking inside. iPod nano for size comparison. It's a Funnel Web alright, glossy body, spinnerets on the back, does the whole sit back and flick the fangs out thing when it's angry. Got the willies now - freaking hate spiders of all kinds, massively arachnophobic so this little bastard is like my Darth Vader. Good thing it's dead.
