Holy crap, that's one huge spider. That freaks me out more than the camel spiders in Iraq.
I'm one of those who will pick up a wolf spider the size of my palm for fun, and that thing honestly scares me.
if you are refering to the email of that big spider that was circulating the net about a year ago, well thats fake, someone photchopped two together

We need to get aussiebloke in here for this one. I've been to Aus many times and have many loved ones over there. For the most part... the idea behind the spiders in Aus is... the smaller the deadlier... never heard of this... I don't know much about this 'publication' but my vote is fake. I base this on very little however.
not always smaller is deadlier....have a look at the trap door spiders, funnel web spiders,....the exception is the red back, they will kill small children and pets, i got biten by one a while back and just puffed up for 24hrs but hey it went away.
but hey i got bitten by a Tralanchula in Malaysia and rode my bike home then told my folks before headin off to hospital

Wait...was that spider eating a BIRD?!
welcome to the land down under....a country where 8 of 10 most dangerous snakes in the world resides!!
where earthworms grow in excess of 10 feet long
cute n cuddly kangaroos will kick and slash people up
where magpie bird bomb dive people during mating season, two weeks back a little girl lost her eye from one
Wombats get hit by cars and known to cause extensive damage to the car, ie ripping the diff out, with the wombat getting up and walking off

"It ate a frikkin' bird!!"
HAHAHA! LOL so much, I think I peed a little on that one!!!!
Australia has the biggest baddest things that will kill you 10 ways to Sunday if you're not careful. Snakes, Spiders, Jellyfish, Sharks, all kinds of stuff. Those pics are CREEPY.
The country needs to repeal the long-gun ban there and let some folks with shotguns, and hunting rifles thin the spider herd a little...
All future spider nightmares had by anyone shall henceforth be blamed on Druid!
usually shooting the native wildlife will end you up in jail, as they are some of the worlds most unique creatures, and if you shoot a red belly black snake or a brown snake it will turn and come after you, they are very very very aggressive snakes!! they will outrun a human no matter how fast you think you are!!
besides if a country of 20 million can survive without being killed off then there isnt a need to go around blasting everything with a gun, some might say those that did are making up for lack of courage!
