Huntsmen are chill non-lethal bug-eating friends. They're just a bit gangly.

And a bit fragile, apparently. Don't know their feelings hurt easily, but I do know that you have to be delicate when moving them around because their legs break otherwise.

At least that was what I was told by a biologist friend, and I believed him.

I'd rather any spider drop on my lap than any beetle.. those things are terrible. They're the worst especially when they form rock groups.

I thought maybe you deliberately dropped an m from "roommate", and he had a "roo mate", and now I'm disappointed.

That's not a dingo, wallaby, crocodile, or kangaroo.  FAIL

If you inhale from one of those beetles you may get a contact high!

It's bad luck to kill a spider.

Just let the scary big spider chill in your place because it eats the smaller, more poisony spiders, you can't see. Sleep tight.

I had one of those bastards emerge from the hole in the wall above my desk every day when I worked in a portacabin in Perth, WA.

It amuses the Ozzies tremendously when I asked if it was anything I needed to worry about. Apparently it wasn't.

I thought you were making a clever spelling mistake with roomate, subby, because I thought you were suggesting he lived with a kangaroo. As in, "roo mate."

Spiders eat the bugs, I always welcome them.  You have to realize that the bugs in your house far outnumber the spiders.  I'd rather have spiders than flies.

Given everything else in Australia can kill you in some way, I think that's a very valid question to ask

How filthy is that place if the other pests can feed a spider the size of a cat?

There is not enough Nope on the internet for that.

They also like lunchables.

Not necessarily. Had two rear up on back legs and charge before. One chased me around my bedroom three times until I managed to get the door open to escape the spider's room.

Came here assuming the most Australian roommate ever would be one that tried to kill you.

I had one come out and say "Hi" on a car I was working on last week.  It started to march over to where the fender cover was, so I yanked it away (don't want to risk crushing the little bugger) and it panicked, went very very still.

I was like, relax duder, just trying to make sure you don't get hurt.  From the spider's perspective, I guess, half the landscape just suddenly disappeared.

Moved into a new place recently and found that we had an unexpected new roommate in the form of a barn funnel weaver living in our laundry room. I told him he could stay, but he had to behave himself, especially around the kids. I named him "Barney."

Every time I washed clothes, Barney would be chilling outside his web and I would say hello and remind him to please stick to the the nooks and the crannies he's used to. "Now, don't you go freaking us out," I'd say. "Don't start nothing, won't be nothing."

Then, one day I hear a blood-curdling scream from my daughter coming from downstairs, followed by loud banging and crashing noises.

Barney started something.

RIP Barney.

How could someone confuse the two?  Austria is a big island-continent, and Australia is in the Alps in Europe.  Duh!

It was in Carins so what would be the point to taking the huntsman out the house? There's just going to be 4 more in there the next day.

Huntsman spiders are neither venomous nor aggressive. They pretty much just sit in some corner and eat pests. There are far worse roommates to be had in Australia and not just among spiders.
