Incidentally, my wife used to have one of these Nephila spiders nesting in the high ceiling of her living room when she was living in Queensland.Â I guess she used it to dissuade potential suitors, but somehow I made it through.
Arrrrrrr another one of those charming Australians :)))
Wow that's up there with the pictures of a Praying Mantis eating a Hummingbird I saw.
So I take it the that your wife was supporting a bias towards arthropodiphiles?
Seems like a reasonable bias to me.
