No would be my answer Mitch. Legs spread she would have been the size of my hand
Not the biggest or dangerous but big spiders bother me. Had one of these run over me a few times. Brrrrrrr

People here keep tarantulas as pets. My brother had one for years. He let it climb on him all the time and never got bit. He put it on me one time and I froze up till he took it off. I was just wondering if these were that mellow and do people down there keep them as pets?

Tarantulas afaik are harmless to humans like huntsmans. Still would not let one climb on me. Small innocuous spiders are fine but big no way.
I guess many Australians keep them as uncaged pets. ie allowed to run free around the house. We mostly see them as harmless and good at keeping other pest spiders away.
