Introduction: Giant Venomous Extinct Arachnid- Found Surviving in Australia

Australia is a place of many unusual species. One of these happen to be the dreaded, little known and previously thought to be extinct species of venomous arachnid
~Octa-spina'a Aurolenta-tis.

This species which was thought to have become extinct in the early 1980's, has been re-discovered at this local Australian address.

Scientists are baffled as to how the event has come to place.
One scientist is quoted as saying:
"The webs architecture is designed to lure its prey, yet providing the perfect ambush environment for the spider. The bulging egg sack within, indicates that it is indeed a female with young. "

Not only is its emergence considered a miracle of nature, the tunnel phenomenon has never before been witnessed by anyone whom has survived to tell the tale.

Happy Halloween from Down Under!

Yaaay! another aussie that celebrates Halloween! Will definitely try something like this in my hallway...

not everything in Australia wants to kill you but you do have to watch out for the drop bears. Ask the lads in the USA army who visit us, so funny to see them scouting through scrub land pointing their weapons sky ward looking for a drop bear to get em. Drop bears=

Down here we use the states as a source of un known as you have here

Very nice

Maaaan! This got me all excited. My first thought was Shelob.. then the Forbidden Grove.. I was onto Aragog before I realized this was fake D:

LoL, your comment intrigued me enough, to look up its references.
I will take it as a complement, my theme this year is JP!1 and will be featuring a life size dilophosaurus puppet I'll be inside. :)

I was all like WAO that's pretty cool. I believed it up until the point where on that "Egg Sack" there were those baby spiders, clearly to me were made of plastic because they all stood the same way, none were curled up or anything.

Oh wow; this is an excellent job! How many things of "web cotton" did you have to use for this much of a web? O:

lol i was half convinced for a second. nice name by the way. =D
