That is some rough stuff... but it pales in comparison to the real terror from down under...

I thought that the clock spider was a Japanese huntsman spider, not Australian at all?

Yeah, I just Googled it and discovered the origin. It's a wolf spider, photo apparently taken in Darwin. There's nothing particularly scary about wolf spiders. They get fairly big, but they're mostly legs.

Nothing about the ants? Tasmania's jack jumper ants are scarier than most spiders.

My wife has major spider phobia. I'm now contemplating whether I should be a good husband and never show her this photo or be evil, e-mail it to her at work and face unspeakable wrath. My evil side is winning. devil

Show her the photo.

The next day, when she's out of the house, take a fine-point permanent marker to the wall behind one of your wall clocks. You will enter legend.
