We also have White Tail spiders over here and they are worse than the Redback. They are a small spider with a flesh eating bacteria that causes your flesh to rot away if you are bitten. Some people have had their fingers or limbs amputated from their bites.:(

Wiki has an interesting read on redbacks. They are related to the back widows, being part of the widow family, but they have a red stripe on top of the abdomen as well. I looked up white tails as well and.... damn. Makes me think of a quote I heard once: Australia: Where 90% of the fauna and half the flora tries to murder you *lol*

My fiance spent 2 years there and loved it, I like to tease him about surviving it :P

The white tail sounds like the Brown Recluse spider here.

Lol, survival of the fittest down here. I loved Billy Conley's talk about Australia, "I was warned to look out for the Sea Wasp whenever I was in the water by the beach, I was looking in the sky for this thing that might attack me. Wasn't till later I found out that it was a fu**ing JELLY FISH!" :D
