    Well everyone who guessed She was so HUGE was due to pre-molt was totally right. I woke to her well into the moulting process this morning Very happy... thank you everyone for the advice

    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?

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

    Looking good at less than 10mm.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. Doomsday


    Atrax Robustus juvi.
  18. Doomsday (Atrax Robustus)

    Doomsday (Atrax Robustus)

    She's doing great, and even getting a red colour on her carapace which is kinda neat
  19. Atrax Robustus sling

    Atrax Robustus sling

    Last night I noticed something really odd. This A Robustus sling seems to have dropped a leg and is in the process of growing a new one?! The white dots in between her chelicerae, on her carapace and abdomen are also very alarming. I managed to dust one off and it moves! Mites or spring tails?

    Doomsday is still alive
