Has the cross on the web so looks like you guys are right on the money.Never seen one in Bunbury though.Had a look on the web at ST Andrews spiders and says that they dont occur in the west.Look a little like our Orb spiders but a bit smaller.

cheers Graeme.

I think you're right as it's not a St. Andrews cross. I have a lot of St. Andrews Cross spiders at my place and they don't look like that one.

Thats interesting it says mainly Queensland from a google search but my girlfriend showed me one on here clothes line in Seaford,Melb a couple of days ago...The web is super strong too..Even a single main strand is hard to pull off,not that i did just tested the tension and was very surprised....

Unless there in your undies people should just let them be...

Animals may supposedly be found only in certain areas. Whats to stop them hitch hiking out of their area?

Found a Sydney Funnel Web a few years back in Wagga Wagga. Was found in a new shipment of stock for a hardware store. Mind you, original departure point was Sydney, but it had to go through Melbourne first. Could have got off there first if it wanted to.

Read a report a while back that the Japanese were having trouble with our friendly little Redbacks.


My old man who is a truck driver ran over a brown snake just out of Wagga Wagga. It was seen getting out from under the truck in Adelaide.

The RAAF base here often get unwanted snakes in there crates from WA.

Just because the book says things are only found in a certain area, does not mean they can't be found out of area.
