This girl was found having a drink in the kitchen sink.
The top one is a 8 shot handheld stack

The internet is full of stories about people getting bitten by these spiders and ending up with flesh eating wounds but none of this can actually be attributed to the white tail spider. The most probable thing is a staph infection on a spider bite. So till it can actually be proven then I would have to say NO. This lovely lady ended up back in the garden :)

Although I can admire your photographic skill, Warrick, that's about as far as my appreciation goes, I'm afraid. I don't know why I look at photos of spiders; perhaps trying to de-sensitize myself?

Incidentally, I believe that all spiders are venomous - it's just the amount (and maybe type?) of venom they inject. Even our UK ones have a venomous bite but their jaws are usually too small to pierce human skin....
