In case you’re wondering: This is an Australian Crab Spider (or White Crab Spider) and their bites are venomous producing mild (but significant) effects on humans ranging from localized pain, redness, dizziness, headaches, nausea, and swelling. Luckily, the symptoms generally subside after 1-2 hours, and equally lucky, it did not bite me.

    I never was frightened of spiders until I was bit by a brown recluse spider. Two rounds of antibiotics and finally the area around the bite healed but it took about 6 weeks!
