- Thanks :) Yes I know that would have been ideal, but I wasn't in a position to take one at the time. I will make sure I take on next time, but hoping not to run into one that big again! We have many regular sized ones around the outside of the house and in the brickwork, but I will keep an eye out. cheers :)
- Hi, I've seen many many redbacks over the years in all parts of queensland, but since moving to a relatively new housing estate near Caboolture, I have seen a couple of monster mutant redbacks. The latest was only 2 days ago when I killed one in our inside garage in a large web that sprung up over night attached to our car wheel. They are commonly described as being around the size of a 5c piece, but this one was huge, and bigger than a 50c pice including legs. The body was very large as well. This is the second one I've seen that size - there was one on the outside wall when we moved in. I spotted this large black spider from across the yard and went for a closer look and was shocked to discover it was a redback! This is very scarey and I'm worried about our dogs or getting one in the house. Have you heard any other reports of oversized redbacks around??
