fun fact: the "daddy long legs" spider actually has a very lethal venom but its mouth is so small it cant bite you...sleep well.

Fun fact: its actually been tested that the daddy long legs spider can in fact bite but it lacks such poison.

Oh wait. I was so completely distracted by your pic that I forgot to post an actual sensible reply.

>Can't imagine why nature would let the spider have a deadly venom if it can't do much with it
#161 to #148 - lombaxion (11/23/2012) [-]
It can do stuff with venom, its just that most human skin is too thick/tough for their fangs to bite through. Soft flesh like the tongue can be bitten I believe.

Moral of the story, don't eat spiders.
#163 to #161 - Sylphion (11/23/2012) [-]
Makes sense, I guess it might be able to bite other organisms, since I don't think spiders are above us on the food chain (I hope)

User avatar #297 to #295 - novabird ONLINE (11/24/2012) [-]
i was never butthurt, i was making a joke and it was funny until you mistook it for being butthurt, so then i thought you were trolling.
also, you never said they taste good on this thread until now.
User avatar #298 to #297 - aussiemozzie (11/25/2012) [-]
It's another way of saying they taste nice.. sorry. Australians talk differently, and your so called 'joke' wasn't a joke.. you were just being a smart ass thanks for the dislikes.

it wasnt me, i havn't even thumbed yet, here i'll show you.
User avatar #300 to #299 - novabird ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
also, people over here talk differently as well and whose not going to be a smartass on this website?
being a smartass is another form of joking(at least that's how it works over here) and i didn't want to use sarcasm because it would seem a bit off.

it's possible, that or our communication methods cause minor confusion between both so neither can tell when joking, there's many variables.

It doesn't even make sense.
User avatar #306 to #305 - novabird ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
it does, but it's that way so we can elaborate or specify things, or do the opposite if we choose, if you watch how i type you'll notice that most of the time i will write quite a bit because i'm being specific, otherwise it's quick and short.
User avatar #307 to #306 - aussiemozzie (11/27/2012) [-]
I've noticed you you don't add any capital letters aswell. Is that part of the vocabulary?
User avatar #308 to #307 - novabird ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
depends on what you mean, there are times i will but i prefer to avoid using them unless i'm writing by hand.
User avatar #309 to #308 - aussiemozzie (11/27/2012) [-]
ok fair enough.

there was a post not too long ago that showed how difficult our language can be, too bad i can't remember what it was called.

it's one of those things that takes getting used to, if you're not used to it then it can be difficult.
User avatar #314 to #310 - aussiemozzie (11/28/2012) [-]
Rightyo then.. I am still confused.
User avatar #311 to #310 - aussiemozzie (11/27/2012) [-]
cool .. I know for a fact that we spell quite alot of things differently.
User avatar #312 to #311 - novabird ONLINE (11/27/2012) [-]
we also emphasize things differently and use a play on words differently, the trick is to decipher what a person actually means from what they said, using specific context usually prevents confusion, for example: you say "spiders are the **** " and posted a picture of a platter with a few baked tarantulas(spiders) on it people will assume you mean to eat, when you post a pic of a person showing an expression it makes it look like you were saying they were awesome or cool or neat, saying "spiders are the **** " can also mean that the **** is in fact made of spiders, which explains my joke, i was using a tricky play on words, i followed it up with a gif explaining what i meant and both of us got confused.

You all seem fairly interested in the spiders that we get around the house here in Australia, so I'll post a few pictures of the types of spiders I have encountered. I'll start with the mouse spider (about the size of the palm of your hand).

This is the last one that I'll post, it's a bird eating spider. They're quite common where I live and like to stay up in the trees or in the shrubbery mainly, but they come inside and bother people sometimes. My mate had one in his shirt the other day when he put it on in the morning and got a nasty bite. (About the size of your hand, can grow bigger)
#122 to #110 - bonkboy (11/23/2012) [-]
Real interesting stuff man. I worked at my Zoo's Insecatarium as a volunteer and then employee for about 4 years now, so I obviously love bugs and arachnids.

We used to have some Golden Orb Spider at our Insectarium until last Spring, and I always thought they were real cool.
User avatar #125 to #122 - Tzunami (11/23/2012) [-]
Their webs are beautiful! They're an amazing breed!
#127 to #125 - bonkboy (11/23/2012) [-]
I know man, there webs were gorgeous. We have a spider in the North American Midwest that makes a spiral moasic in its web too, but I say its shunned by the Golden Orb's.   
   
We also had a Birdeater Spider, I named Bertha. (I don't think she is an Australian Species though.)

This one is a redback spider and is a very well known icon for Australia. They are related to the black widow as some of you will probably notice, except that they have that distinctive red mark on their back. They are very venomous and are a constant worry for parents as they love living in places that aussie kids like to put their fingers, like under flower pot rims and in garden shed doors.
#117 to #110 - Tzunami (11/23/2012) [-]
Funnel web spiders are an iconic spider for Australians, and are named after the big funnels of webs they make in the ground as a trap for nearby prey. They come indoors sometimes and are a pest due to their extremely venomous stings. Luckily I have only ever had one indoors once, and it was near a door where I could sweep it out.
#115 to #110 - Tzunami (11/23/2012) [-]
The Huntsman spider. These little buggers are extremely common, and some households are literally infested with them! But they're okay in moderation, you'd go crazy trying to get them all out of your house in spider season so a lot of us just leave them be becuase they're non-venomous and eat all of the bugs that come inside :). (Note, this isn't the best picture but I thought a lot of you would recognise it from the viral video that this is a screenshot from).

This is a wolf spider. The mothers carry around thousands of live babies which cling to her back. I made the unfortunate mistake of dropping one when I was trying to take it outside and ended up with millions of baby spiders running all over my bedroom floor :(.

This is a Golden orb spider, we get thousands of them living in giant colonys with webs that span vast distances of rainforest (like the spiders in the harry potter movie). I am pretty sure we only get them where I live (far north Queensland) up in the rainforest. There's a baby one living in my kitchen at the moment on a flower pot. I'll just leave him there until he gets too big, then I'll relocate him.

User avatar #293 to #268 - Tzunami (11/24/2012) [-]
Haha I have no idea whether they're venomous or not I've never gotten them angry enough to find out. But I would assume that they are as most spiders are in Australia. A simple rule we follow is; just don't get bitten by anything because you'll probably die :P

User avatar #118 to #116 - Tzunami (11/23/2012) [-]
Ahhhk, yeah I think they're mainly in QLD. They might move down to northern NSW but they seem like a tropical spider so I don't think they'd go much further south than that.

They are lying in wait, gathering in number and waiting, just waiting for you to let your guard down. Then when you least expect it, millions of spiders will pour out of your walls consuming all in their path. You? you will most likely be wrapped in layers upon layers of spider silk where they will slowly feast on your liquefied innards for days. Have a good day.
