In NZ we have nothing that really wants to eat/mate with you but the spiders here are little bstards. They are black house spiders ..now ok they are harmless but they have an interesting set of defense mechanisms that make trying to catch the little buggers a nightmare. A really bad nightmare for anyone who hates spiders..like me..
They run...really quickly
They can run sideways....really quickly
And they jump.....straight at you. In the hope that you jump away and in the shock second they run in a different direction.. that really puts the beejeebies up you.
We do have one spider that will give you a nasty nip.. its called a white tip and dependent upon what he has been eating lately a bite from him can cause necrosis. nice.
