Redback Spider

Description:

These seem to be everywhere in the A.C.T, Australia. My first day in Australia I had one crawling on the couch. He or she was relocated to the backyard garden.

She also looks a bit dehydrated in the abdomen, she'll be needing to feed soon.

This one looks like a female, they are all over Australia and are a close relative of the Black Widow Spider.
