Awesome Australian spiders

That's the one Sandman is talking about, they are a dime a dozen here.
My personal favourite, jumping spiders!
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

If it is the yellow/black ones, we had one, Penelope, living outside our window for like 2 years. But it wasn't that obscenely huge! It was big, but not indecent, she was a lady.

Haha, I know I've seen some that large - but their bodies aren't as fat. Their legs were definitely as long though! I didn't have a camera last time I went, so next time I guess I'll have to take pictures as proof.

Thanks, I'll take your word for it.

I used to take Toto hiking in Jinmei's Temple mountain, mmm, I think I won't do it anymore...
