    Just a small one EeeBees. There was a big sucker found in the Wairarapa in the last 2 weeks, they ooze a lot of gunk when you squash em. Used to catch them as kids in the Wairarapa
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    Well cool. I love spiders.

    Probably a tunnel web? They live in holes in the ground usually filled with cobwebs, we used to call them trapdoors, we use to catch them in jars for pets, used to get some biggies, I remember!

    Were you one of those evil little buggers that used to pull the legs off one side and watch them go round in tiny circles? Oops
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
