Australians To Be On Alert!
Closed

After dealing with catastrophic fires then flooding and hailstorms, Australians are being warned to watch out for one of the world's most deadly spiders due to what experts call "perfect conditions" for the arachnid to thrive.
The spider is nocturnal and extremely sensitive to sunlight. As reported by AustralianGeographic.com, males wander at night in search of a mate. Ranger Mick from the Australian Reptile Park told the website they will look for anywhere sheltered to wait the day out, and that’s when they end up in people’s shoes or houses.

Funnel-web spiders are ground-dwelling, meaning they can't climb smooth surfaces like plastic or glass. Their bites are painful, have clear fang marks and are capable of causing serious illness or death in humans if left untreated. If bitten, experts advise victims to immobilize the affected area, put on a bandage and seek immediate medical attention.

It never rains but it pours...hopefully, they won't experience any more casualties/fatalities.
