Hope i didnt scare you too much 😉
To be honest, such creatures are part of the reason why I didn’t make it to Oz yet.
With today’s camera lenses and macro converters I wasn’t sure first how big the spider was, but when I read 10-12 cm you definitely scared me!
Just read some articles on spiders the other day and it turns out there are a few you should keep away from, but most are not as dangerous as they’ve been portraited.. Oz is awesome btw 🙂
Have you read about a very small spider which is the most dangerous, paralyzing you with one bite?
Just to be sure I think I will keep away from all spiders (and snakes, and crocodiles, and jellyfish, and not to forget all the poisonous plants over there…sigh) – if I ever dare to go 😉
