sydney funnel-web spider Description
  The Sydney funnel-web spider is probably the most deadly spider in the world. They have large fangs and venom sacs. Males are smaller than the females, usually slimmer and with longer legs. The funnel-web spiders have shiny, solidly built limbs. They have a row of teeth along the fang groove and another row on their paired claws. While the female usually stays in one spot, males tend to roam in search of a mate.
