    Funnel web housing

    I'm thinking of using this for my A. Robustus I get it's not as secure as a click lid but i could cut some perspex and make a hinged lockable lid.... Any thoughts?

    Atrax robustus

    A picture of a beautiful brown juvie Sydney Funnel-web spider (A. robustus) to lift the spirits in these trying times.
  14. A. sutherlandi

    A. sutherlandi

    The beautiful dark chocolate girl in the process of being rehoused. Her burrow started within two minutes. I think the abdomen patterning of Atrax sutherlandi makes them, perhaps, the most beautiful atracid.
  15. Atrax sutherlandi surprise packet

    Atrax sutherlandi surprise packet

    I arrived home from work this morning and started feeding some of the critters. When I lifted the lid on one of my southern NSW funnel-webs (A. sutherlandi) her burrow was closed. Lifting her container to have a little looksie this surprise greeted my previously tired eyes.
  16. Atrax robustus

    Atrax robustus

    Female specimen, and very defensive even by funnelweb standards.
  17. Atrax robustus sling

    Atrax robustus sling

  18. Atrax robustus

    Atrax robustus

    This is the largest of the A. robustus trio that I collected yesterday. She is a beauty. Her abdomen seems darker than the other Sydney funnel-webs that I have of a similar size.
  19. Atrax Robustus juvenile

    Atrax Robustus juvenile

    Doomsday showing her death nectar. Unlike her sister Deathbringer, she has a very nasty temperament and will readily lunge at the air if you remove the lid when she comes outside for a drink
  20. Atrax robustus (×3) and a coffee

    Atrax robustus (×3) and a coffee

    After finishing the nightshift and running errands into the afternoon, I had enough time for a short jaunt through local bushland followed by a coffee, with some new found friends, prior to picking my youngest up from school. A trio of A. robustus mygs. Approx. 8mm, 15mm, and 20mm body length.
