    Get out of there quickly its a funnel web, highly poisonous have you bought fresh fruit esp bananas lately? Its likely to have come over with them.
























    Kidding, it just looks like a common spider you find in a garden, big ugly but completely harmless (jeez sounds like im describing myself there!).

    Thats one bad looking spider :?

    That looks very suspect !! :w00t:

    lol it's been chucked outside now just wondered if it was dangerous or not

    it is a common house spider. they can grow quite big (a good inch+ long) but cant hurt you in the slightest.

    I quite like them really....

    Please don't kill spiders, they eat dirty stinking flies and such. They will not hurt you whereas a fly can easily spread disease.

    YUK YUK YUK....why did i open this post, i have a hugeeeeeeeeee fear of spiders lol....yet i open it, and hotto your in trouble now for showing such close ups, thats minging lol

    remember all british spiders have fangs and bite, but most wont penetrate our skin, only 1 british spider will give you a fairly painful bite and thats the water spider, but usually this is much less severe than the bites and stings of many common insects.

    Of all our spiders, this is one that can and will bite if mis-handled. The bite is painful, not unlike a bee sting.
