Look what we found dangling above where we keep our hats!
This is the most famous spider in Western Australia. It’s called a Redback, for obvious reasons.
It is tiny, and its speciality is hiding in the dark nooks and crannies that are in bikes, shoes, shoe laces, hats, under tables and chairs, and the holes in things where you put your fingers in to grab hold and lift.
And so, every parent is terrified of them, because they hide in the places kids play and because they are venomous.
I was recently told that they are not nearly as dangerous as their reputation…but they just look so evil!
