  1. The Find-a-Spider guide tells me this might be a Huntsman, possibly heteropoda jugulans or heteropoda cervina.

    "May be mildly toxic to humans and may cause necrotising arachnidism."

  2. Bravo! I think you handled the crisis very well. Live and let live, I say, but not in the bedroom. Next time try a cut down plastic softdrink bottle and a piece of cardboard. Place the 'dome' over the critter, slide the cardboard underneath and hey presto, a safe spider jail, release outside and feel good for the rest of the day.

  3. I found one just like that in my house once. I spotted it just under the toilet seat as I was about to use it. I will never forget the horror.

  4. Hmm well here's another tip: be careful if you ever visit Australia…

    Huntsmen are harmless, not sure if this is one, though.

    Also if they're missing a leg or two that often means they're getting on in age; therefore also slower, and easier to catch.
