    So... the other day i calmly went to my parents house and went into the garden to find my little shitter of a cat. When i noticed a fukin hench spider curled up in a corner... so i tried to find something to catch it... and although it was still alive... it was doing very little and didnt even attempt to run away on touching it... instead... reared up its front legs and made two tiny beads of venom come from its fangs.... so i killed it...

    So... on investigating it and sending it to London Zoo... it turns out its a Male Trapdoor Spider.... WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.... as it wasnt as big as it should have been when kept in captivity... they assumed it must have come over in fruit or veg of some sort.


    Now... not to weird right?

    But monday i find one of these....

    (not my picture... i couldnt get a good enough shot)

    Yet again in my parents Garden. Not ever seeing a green spider like it before I again... packed it into a tuppaware box... this time alive... sent it to London Zoo. For them to call me asking me exactly where it was found.... did it seem to have been living anywhere.... and if they could visit to see if any eggs had been laid etc etc. And yesterday a dude from the Zoo came to my parents house. WEIRD RIGHT!??

    Anyway... its a Jumping Spider from the Orthrus family.... and had only been discovered in Papua New Guinea 3-4 years ago and that this is the first time it had been reported in London.

    FUCKED UP!!

    walked into my bathroom some point last year to find a FUCKING MAHUSIVE motherfucker of a spider. like, bigger than your average tarantula, but all skinny and shit...and i'm shit scared of spiders.

    but i wanna know how the fuck it got there, as theres no window, and the gap under the door is like 3mm tops, way too small for this fucker to get under.

    i did have a photo, but thats gone. swear i posted it to my facefuck :/

    That's mental rocks. That first one looks pretty hefty!
    A work mate was banging on about a massive green spider yesterday. Hmmm. Horrible

    This is becoming way more apparent, I have a few spiders in my place, i quite like them to be honest, however there was this spider hiding out behind a light near my pc desk, watched it grow bigger catch & kill flies then it started to develop a pattern on its back as it got bigger, so i looked it up on-line and turned out to be one of these fuckers

    Its a False Widow, its layed eggs too as I've seen a couple of smaller ones around now, from what I've read its the most venomous spider in the U.K, mostly found on the south coast but it seems to be getting everywhere now

    shit me pants loik

    my window hasn't been shut in nearly a year (smoke and such), but dont get much beefings from spiders. there is this one harvestman that jam in the corner, but he keeps to himself.


    pro-tip, put conkers on your windowsill/around your house, and you wont see any spiders for a while, they hate those things for some reason.
