Aussie spiders are evil!

Besides monster orb-weavers that can eat birds, you’ve go the Sydney funnel web spider with the potentially lethal bite, and two varieties the names of which I forget, but which were discussed in connection with the finding of one in his wine cellar by a late colleague:

One spider in question gives a very painful bite that takes months to heal. The question, when one was found in the wine cellar was whether to let it live because it is the deadly enemy of another species of spider that gives a very painful bite that doesn’t heal.

Doesn’t matter how venomous the bite was-I’d literally have a heart attack and die if I had one of those damned things anywhere near me.
