i saw it again this morning n saw that the legs and carapice are more brown and there is a hint of a couple grey spots on the abdomen so rekon it's likely to be false widow n he's a little aggressive too, already tried to munch me but his fangs are tiny cuz he's only a weener, gonna try to box him up though! suposed to be only a little toxic but i wonder if not dangerous only cuz usually docile

yeh i saw in your first coment that you thought it might be a false widower -- now we know cool Smile
def different looking to any of the spiders that i have seen before .

i kept a funnel web once but no pix, not the kinda spid you wanna muk around with!!
there's nothing here venomous at all, false widow is as bad as it gets n thats cuz of us lot importin live crickets n all in little safe enclosures, we get all sorts like that! i also had some deadly scorps, they came back in a friends suitcase, only babies but waaay too venomous, like 2o mins n no hospital = bye bye. they ended up dyin cuz i wouldn't help them moult, didn't wanna risk touchin them, they were very cute though.
ooh wanna see my emp. scorp pic, i keep him in a nice happy tank terrarium n he's gettin to be a juvenile now, i had him from since he was a little wormy grub!
there is a big cat debate on the go, are they real or no, in the 70's people chucked out their pet pumas n lynxs cuz of a change in liscence laws, so there could be something dangerous out there...

re cats/pumas

Post  shaz on 11th February 2010, 9:14 am

yeh vawn the funnel web is def very exteme in its features -------no mistaking one once you have identified they even look lethal ! yukk

if you see a scorpion that would be cool and to check out your pics Smile all good

dont get me started on irresponsible people with their animals especially with cats !! not kept in check !!Evil or Very Mad they become feral and kill all our amazing birds and wildlife a huge problem here in oz

some of the feral cats that i have seen in the country are massive . we have a friend that was actaully attacked by one in his garage a few years back !
they heard a comotion going on , wENT to investigate and when opening the side door there was this ferel cat hanging in the corner and .. when he tried to remove the thing it flew at him What a Face a pitch fork was used to protect himself !!! it was hugee

i will leave the final out come for it to your imagination.. was a very bad experience for him. in ALL ways ! -----

seeing a puma /lynx creeping about the bush would be hell scarey. .

by that comment on the scorpion i take it you have already had a strike-- Shocked hmmm i'll be right , i would rather dora anyday--- :

: excellent that you shared snorkelling with your dad i guess over your way it would be almost dry suit conditions - .

i think i would be heading off to the red sea !.

i wanna get a boat, it ain't that cold over here!! though we were in winter wetsuits in the middle of summer!! but there's little in the way of marine life unless you go rock poolin, there's all interestin stuff like anenomies n shore crabs
leat it was the emp that done me n not the b.o.s'!! n he was even smaller then stabby bitey stabby stabby n i could n't even feel it n he was gettin relly angry!
i tried to make him a little more aggressive so it would eat properly but it's gonna end up bigger than dora one day Shocked

hey vawn
i think dora is just right size for me to handle Smile
seeing any larger spider than that and i would be peaking -lol -- so you have to encourage them to eat ? by the pics i have seen looks like they would devour anything in their path lol..
yeh i love checking out the rock pools and doing low tide walks . sunny . seeing so much variety star fish tube worms and anemones in abundance . we would do this often with the kids , was so educational for them . we once found these spotted eels too they named heckle and jeckle , soo cute they had such personalities . we often went back to see how the were maturing . some of the tropical fish as well, we would collect for our aquarium. .

i got msg from straddie about diving with the manta rays in MAY it is almsot out of season then so heres hoping ! and now i have that underwater camera sorted i hope to maybe get a few pics and will post.
cheers

fishing spider hmm sounds interesting ! so how large do they get ?
not so sure of the wolf spider they kinda jump at you What a Face so a large one doing that would kinda spin me out a little i think
i can imagine setting up house for them would be cool Smile so do the children share this interest with you ?
