Spider identification made simple
Spiders are a fact of life for Australians. We share our homes with them, check our shoes for them, run away from them – and yet, we often know surprisingly little about them. When it comes to telling the dangerous ones from the harmless, the web-spinners from the burrow-dwellers, the back end from the front – what do we really know?
