Mouse Spiders!

About time I do some thing on these don't you think? Here is some info on them:

Mouse Spiders - Actinopodidæ:

Is there such a thing? Yes! Look info!

They are 8 species of mouse spiders in Australia and they
are widely distributed across the mainland. They vary from 10-35
mm body length and all have distinctively bulbous head and jaw regions.
They are often confused with funnel-web spiders.

While mouse spider bites
are not common, a few have caused serious effects in humans, with
symptoms similar to funnel-web spider envenomation. Fortunately,
mouse spiders are not usually abundant in heavily populated urban areas.

Thank god! Source of info:
