Advertisement I live in the US, Oregon to be specific. When I was a kid I loved collecting spiders, and remember seeing one that looked EXACTLY like a Redback spider. I tried catching it but it ran under a bush, which, while making me very disappointed back then, was definitely a good thing if it somehow was a Redback. Is it possible for a spider ingenious to Australia to be found in the US? Or are there similar-looking spiders that reside in the US? And if so, what are they called? Thanks!
