Can the Austrailian Funnel Webs climb glass? I have seen a few specials on them on tv and I have always wondered if they can climb glass.

thanks,
John

Depends on the species of funnelweb

For most species:No, but they can climb the webbing of the funnel quite well and it usually is pretty close to the top of the jar or vial they are being kept in. Also I want to express that caution must be used when working with funnelwebs.

Unless you live in Australia your chances of getting them are slim to none
