    I wish I was Australian over this shit!

    This guy has let this beautiful creature run free in his house for a year.

    In Australia those animals are free. In America they would cost like 500 dollars and you have to buy them underground here in the Twin Cities. I've never ever seen one for sale.

    This is in the stoners lounge because God was stoned when he made a creature like that.

    I totally would dig that thing on my wall staring at me with his six eyes and watching him chase small mice and things.

        I was gonna say IT (God) was on meth but that wasn't discovered till 1919. Maybe IT was on shrooms. Those have been around since before aquatic life started walking.

            Back in college I took a summer course in Ecuador on a bus traveling the country. On a rural highway in the rainforest, we had to stop the bus to let a Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula cross the road.

              I've owned one. The females cost 200 dollars.

                Biggest one I've had and she made rattlesnake noises with her legs when threatened.

              I’m in Australia and if that thing was in my house, the house would be burnt down.

                I've never had a spider in my apartment. Which is good, becuase It don't buy newspapers anymore and I don't own a pair of thongs (flip flops)


                So I'm not sure what I'd use to squat a spider that size of I ever found one

                      Every spider has venom but a giant Huntsman isn't going to be that bad. I've been bit by a female Goliath which is the largest spider in the world, and it wasn't actually as bad as the venemous hairs she would flick onto me that got into my eyeball on one occassion when I itched my eye.

                      Her bite would make me swell slightly. She only bit because I was harrassing her. Typically if you massage a spiders fangs, they give you a warning by opening their fangs, and if you leave your finger there, the fangs clamp down and penetrate, and there is a sweet exchange of bodily fluid that makes you turn white, swell, sometimes become necrotic and peel, or once I had pain feeling like electricity going from my finger to my shoulder from a chewed on nerve ending when I put my finger in the web of an OBT.

                      Typically if you aren't buying the really vicious breeds like baboons and startling them in their web, you won't get bitten unless you touch her inapropriately.

                      Also, in spiders, how aggressive, hostile, violent, and venom potency always without exception has to do with what gender your spider is. The females are far more pissed off than males. The guy just wants to lose his virginity, and often the female insists on killing him if he doesn't make all the right moves on his first try.

                      The price of a male spider drops to 25% of a female when people realize it's male , because it's so common for him to get eaten when he loses his virginity. I think it's romantic personally and gives a whole new level of unity and becoming one flesh with your spouse.

                        living in australia? my experience here has shown me that there are definitely side effects at least.

                          A Giant Huntsman is a cousin of the crab spider, which is one of the nicest spiders you'll ever meet.

                            I'm just wondering why people feel the need to kill it if it's not a danger to them.

                            ​​​​​​Just put it out the house

                            The human reaction of killing things it doesn't want near it is so over the top
