No. There aren't Tarantuas in Australia, though we do have some other big spiders. I've relocated some Huntsmen with a cup and a piece of paper but never using my bare hands.
17-01-2013 . . . I am beyond horrified . . . I have just watched Bushwacked on the ABC and we do have tarantulas here. They anaesthetised one and milked it's venom. " Australian tarantulas are found in Queensland, New South Wales, and parts of South Australia and the Northern Territory." (I may never sleep again)

See how upset I am . . ?! I put 2013 !! Only three years out.

Cool. I just looked this up. I've heard of bird eating spiders, but not heard them called Tarantulas before. Common names can be confusing.I don't think we get those down here (Brisbane/Ipswich), more further North or West. Probably a very good thing. I don't like the idea of a bite that can cause 6 hours of vomiting!

I've never met anyone over here who's actually been bitten by one, though I know a couple of people who've been bitten by redbacks.
Never. This activity isn't anywhere on my bucket list.
Never and I dont intend to ever
No, I like spiders but I have no desire to hold one.
Why? on Earth would I do that!

8 hairy legs on the palm of my hand....lol....lol

Like that's something one can't wait to do.
Funny :)
No! Where'd I go to do that?

Have helped many a 'Huntsman' to front garden, wrapped in a Tea-towel! Only allow one in house at a time! That's all that's needed to keep insects & geckoes' at bay!
I'll have the geckoes any day.
by Rice
Nope, Rice, they eat aircon cables.
Not happy, Jan!

The stupid creatures!
by Rice
.......& a costly 'sparky' account to get cables replaced!

How can a gecko eat cables?
I dunno. Have to ask a gecko! BUT it happens constantly here, so it ain't a furphy!
