2) Australian Funnel Web Spider (2 of 6)




Also known as atracinae, this spider is native to Australia.

The bite of this spider is venomous, and could be potentially deadly.

Though they are only 1-5 cm. in length, their fangs are quite large and dangerous.

The funnel-webs make burrows in moist, cool, sheltered habitats, under rocks and in rotting logs, some in rough-barked trees.

Unlike some spiders, they do not build lids to their burrows, so be careful!
