Wikipedia says if it bites you, you might suffer from "general malaise". :D

I wonder who this general Malaise is. Sounds French.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Can't don't know where it went. I knocked it off the bit of wood I was about to knock down and it bounced on the floor and walked off. Don't know where it went after that.

Judging from the look of it, Jason, it probably went in search of a bigger bit of wood to beat you with. :lol:

some reason that reminded me of death fishing. big burly fly stalking into the water, beating the carp out of a fish and then dragging it to shore :lol:

We have False Widows here. They are living in our sun lounge. I haven't been bitten yet, but the darn things bred & we now have hundreds of baby spiders around the sun lounge. They look so small & helpless I've not the heart to squish 'em. I did evict the parents though.
The spiders do vary in colour, from reddish light brown to black, but they all have that lacy white pattern on their backs. They are the same shape as the deadly Black Widow, with tapered legs to almost a point at their feet.
The bite of the False Widow isn't deadly, but it could make you feel rather ill for a while.
Their webs are very untidy, lots of downward strands & not much cross strands. I saw the web first. :shock:
Best wishes,
Tiff
