Rain Spider near Parklands North

A member of the Huntsman Spiders family, Rain Spiders are free-running, ground-living arachnids often found in built-up areas, trees, under bark, in rock crevices, and on vegetation.

Rain Spiders are harmless to humans and can be from 6-36 mm in size. They are easily recognizeable because of their size, the banded patterning on their legs, and the white “moustache” on their cephalothorax (head & thorax).

Their venom is not deadly to humans, and comparable to a beesting.
