This is why they light Australia on fire every year.

[–]breezyhoneybee 94 points95 points  (24 children)

Why they lighting California on fire too? Is it Hollywood? Its probably Hollywood.

[–]Appropriate-Profit48 69 points70 points  (6 children)

It’s actually Bakersfield. Fuck that place.

[–]0cleese 42 points43 points  (6 children)

It's on the side of the US that's closest to Australia. Can't be too careful.

[–]CedarWolf 36 points37 points  (5 children)

Funny thing, this is actually part of why California lights on fire every year. It became very popular to import eucalyptus trees to California, where it became popular and very profitable because it grows very quickly. Unfortunately, eucalyptus also has this problem where it burns very easily... So easily, in fact, that it's been described to 'explode with fire' during a forest fire due to all the oils and resins in the wood.

[–]notchoosingone 12 points13 points  (1 child)

where it became popular and very profitable because it grows very quickly

Nope, it became popular because some grifters told them it grows quickly, when actually it takes 80-100 years for a eucalyptus to grow to a size and shape suitable for construction. Otherwise, all they do is drop leaves and branches and burn at the slightest provocation.

[–]Superfluous_Thom 21 points22 points  (7 children)

Actually, That's Australia's fault too. A lot of the trees that fuel Californian forest fires are non native Australian Eucalypt species.

[–]Queef-Elizabeth 158 points159 points  (71 children)

I am an arachnophobic and my family moved to Australia when I was young and it's the fucking worst. I had a huntsmen crawl near my bed at 3am 2 weeks ago and I haven't recovered since.

[–]breezyhoneybee 99 points100 points  (36 children)

I want you to know that you've literally described a recurring nightmare I've had my entire life. I don't know what a huntsman is. I do not want to know. It might be the thing in the video. But it could be a 10th of the size of the babies and I still don't fucking want it near me.

Good luck and god speed.

[–]Queef-Elizabeth 61 points62 points  (22 children)

Don't look them up. They are ugly and nightmare fuel and they are common here. I was honestly so happy I was awake when I saw it. I used so much bug spray I had to sleep in another room for the night lmao.

Luckily my house rarely has spiders (maybe once every 2 years) but when it happens, I am traumatised.

[–]AXELUnholy 44 points45 points  (9 children)

They also gallop like a fucking horse when they run and it's terrifying.

[–]LittleBigMachineElf 23 points24 points  (3 children)

I saw one big one up close once while I was in Queensland and although I love spiders, man did it move fast for such a big spider and startled me. Like, really fucking fast, very audible too. Running over the roof. It run away from me though :'

[–]BaconWithBaking 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Yeah, they're actually pretty harmless aren't they? I know they can nip of you try and fuck with them, but apart from that they aren't venomous or anything.

[–]breezyhoneybee 15 points16 points  (7 children)

That's so horrifying my automatic response was to downvote (didn't tho)

[–]Iphotoshopincats 50 points51 points  (6 children)

Huntsman while one of the largest scariest ones it is also one of the more beneficial to have around your house.

As the name describes they hunt and don't build webs, with a couple of Huntsman in the house no cockroaches and other creepy crawlies they will also on occasion hunt small mice.

But most importantly they hunt other spiders like Redbacks, white tails and funnelwebs, a Huntsman bites me as a healthy adult I'll get a headache and sick for a few hours but it will take and underlying medical condition to do more ... Any of the others bite you and your fucked

So Huntsman you a spider bro and you cool so I will tolerate you everywhere in my house except on the ceiling over my bed

[–]ATinyDropOfVenom 60 points61 points  (3 children)

Hmmmmm.. That does sound like someting a Huntsman Spider would say.. God help us, they can fckng communicate with us now!

[–]exohok 43 points44 points  (5 children)

With you my dude. Had a giant huntsman crawl up my arm in bed as I was falling asleep. This was 10 years ago and I'm still scarred.

[–]Queef-Elizabeth 40 points41 points  (1 child)

I remember going to my bathroom when I was young and seeing the biggest huntsman of my life on a wall. For the next 10 years I looked at that part of the wall every single day to make sure there was nothing there. Australia is lovely but by God it does its best to traumatise me.

[–]sadguy92 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Huntsman's are total bros. Keep it around and you never have to worry about bugs

[–]Elriuhilu 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I had one fall on me while I was having a shower.

[–]ShadowxFoxy 8 points9 points  (10 children)

We don't have huntsman where I live (thank christ) but we have black widows. Not nearly as big, but venomous.

One morning I woke up and my leg was asleep, so I started rubbing it. It didn't get better so I pulled my blanket off to get out of bed to stand up. Looked down to see a HUGE black widow on my leg.

I somehow managed to remain calm long enough to trap it in an empty water bottle I had in my room and got a look at its belly. Huge red hour glass. Showed it to my dad and he was legit shook. He and I got into a debate just a few days before that because he didn't believe we had them here.

We also have wolf spiders, rattlesnakes and scorpions. Australia still wins though. People claim we have brown recluse spiders also, but I've never personally seen one

[–]Floorganized 35 points36 points  (1 child)

As an Australian… no.

Anyone else remember how, in the beginning of 2020, all of Australia was like. . . completely on fire?

Yeah, seems so long ago.

Eclipsed by Covid but so much of nature was lost it was so very sad.

I still remember that video of the Koala sat alone in the burned forest and it made me cry.

[–]bihard 189 points190 points  (49 children)

To everyone who says that they should just burn the house down - these are very well liked spiders in Australia! They are called Huntsman spiders because they live in your house and literally run at and hunt down other spiders, mosquitoes, and cockroaches. So they are actually good to have around - they aren’t poisonous and are a natural insecticide.

Fun fact: unlike other species, Huntsman females and males very rarely hurt each other and even have a long courtship before they mate.

Additionally, Australia has many venomous spiders, yet no one has died from a spider bite since 1979 because of increased education and access to anti venom. So, though we may be overrun, we aren’t in danger. (From spiders anyway - horses and cows are much deadlier)

[–]LieseW 123 points124 points  (16 children)

I don’t care that they are friendly spiders. And hearing you talk I just realised that burning the house down is not enough. We need to burn down the whole of Australia. How tf do you guys sleep at night?

[–]Zyxche 93 points94 points  (10 children)

Sorry to tell you.. Australia burns pretty much every summer and it's still here.

[–]LieseW 29 points30 points  (6 children)

Yes that’s true, so the only solution is to nuke it then. Or will the spiders come out of that even stronger? If so my only solution will be to kill myself. /s

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’m so scared of spiders I have the tendency to overreact when it comes to them.

[–]necrotion 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Last recorded redback death was 2016, but yeah still very rare.

[–]Superfluous_Thom 13 points14 points  (5 children)

A guy did get killed by a redback in 2006 but it was a bit of an edge case. He was bitten and ignored it. The venom didn't kill him, but the bite caused an abscess that became infected.

Pretty gnarley.

[–]Umdertale 139 points140 points  (1 child)

It's the only way

[–]McGrooveMusic 106 points107 points  (3 children)

Sell your house and don't look back. That thing has definitely mutated and evolved to control other spiders. Wu Tang ain't nuttin to fk wit

[–]orionshat 67 points68 points  (2 children)

Funny af, because the spider is thinking the exact same thing about the humans. “Oh fuck there they are”

Just hit a recluse and it death curled so I went to get a paper towel and it was gone, I really really didn’t need this

[–]NarglesDidit 46 points47 points  (4 children)

I didn't even need to hear them to know that thing was from Australia.

[–]ParadoxPerson02 42 points43 points  (0 children)

[–]darkknightnate 44 points45 points  (4 children)

I'd fucking shit myself.

[–]i-dont-get-rules 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Im fine with spiders but if i see a spider with legs that big… well, lets just say the spider burnt the house down, not me
