Although I really don't like spiders I just couldn't bring myself to kill them.

They seem to be getting bigger, up until last year I had never seen them this big :eek:

I don't know what kind it is, but it would be a dead spider if I saw it :)
:laugh:

seen a big spider ruun accross he lounge last night, pointed it out to my wife and her feet came up on the sofa so fast i couldn't help laughing my head off!

anyway, a pint glass and a piece of paper to handle it and let it out the window to live another day.

For their looks they are pretty easy to pick up and hold.

I have come across loads of house spiders but this one just looked different and was super fast, it's got grey stripes as well.

It could be the bigger one then, it looks more menacing up close and personal, although size isn't always the clue.
it is the only species of the whole Agelenid family to be able to bite through human skin proper
Which isn't pleasant, I can vouch for from personal experience :)

yeah, I'm not one for killing them myself. I can yhapily share a room with them as long as they stay up in the corners of the ceiling, but if they start venturing down the wall when I am there, they get trapped with a jar then get thrown out of the window

I think the second one is called the flipping big spider, and it would be meeting the dyson pretty sharpish if it was in my house

We used to make them fight each other as kids and they can really bite hard.

Nah, big is when you arm wrestle a spider and lose. :D
Actually, big is when you pick it up and can feel the weight of it on your hand. Yes, I pick them up to put out safely especially when some big tough guy is climbing the wall. :devil:

That's a pussy cat :rotfl:

We've found run to the hills-this one twice in my 8 years in a busy port and its a complete and absolute nut case. At +4 degree it wanted to have a go at everyone.

I dont really fear spiders that much, but this one scares the **** out of me.

it's an australian red back spider, so the chances of finding one in britain are small. but..... sometimes these little things reside in toilet bowls :eek: guess if you are an australian woman, you don't complain about the seat being left up :laugh:
