    The orange one is my favourite "normal" trappy, she is from far north west Qld and is unidentified. The other is a bearded trapdoor Xamiatus rubifrons, there quite rare and are from south east Qld.

    Hadronyche formidabilis tend to max out around 100mm (I keep them too).

    they are bloody hard to find :lol:
    this girl was a Paraoxypilus Tasmaniensis, and also, nice orange trappy !

    @ Zac :, yer i said that wrong, what i meant was, no australian scorpion or tarantula are highly venomous - a bite can kill you

    @ thals : brilliant wolfie mate :), looks like a big healthy female lycosid godeffroyi :D


    Cheers everyone

    they seem to die in the winter ?
    probably because they have a short lifespan.

    My Fiance love wolf spiders and considers the ones on the yard her 'pets'. She found this one at her work (plant nursery) and thought it was very orange. Never seen one like it before.

    And richoman, you dont need to be of a certain age to keep funnelwebs but they are not just another spider.. they need to be respected in the same way a taipan or something similar does.. they are very fast and can kill you, plus not all hospitals carry antivenom for the particular species you might be after.. i would suggest waiting until you are 18 as kenshin has already said. No one in there right mind would or should sell a funnelweb to a 13 year old, no offence mate but there very dangerous.

    Oh and the orange "wolfie" looks more likely to be some kind fo water spider species, and the unknown one with silver stripes is some kind of swift spider.

    Jimbobulan that isn't a baby huntsman. And the second looks like a swift ground spider or something, I forget the name..

    Regardless, funnelwebs are very easily stressed too death and are generally ridiculously aggresive when bothered and can climb tweezers or brushes or anything else you stick in and are extremely fast.. get a trapdoor, most look better and cant kill you. Though, trapdoors cannot kill you they will kill your dog or cat if they bite it, yet a funnelweb will kill you but not a dog or cat.. interesting thing about them, something to do with the proteins in funnelweb venom working more on primates then other animals, cant exactly remember atm im half asleep.
