^Seems like I'm walking into these webs all day long on the property. And, they are industrial-strength webs too! Nothing like a face full of web to cause disorentation! The spiders never seem to bite tho - red ants are my biggest problem. Them and the 'booats' - termites.

Jumping spiders can't hurt you. Actually, they'll eat the spiders that spin webs in the house; other spiders are an important prey item.

Thailand's spiders aren't very impressive, compared to the US or especially Aussie. They make up for it in snakes, scorpions and centipedes I suppose. None of the above troubles me much when I am stomping about the greenery in Thailand- the wee ticks and leeches are really annoyingi, but t's the damned ants and hornets that worry me, not to mention the awful things one can get from mossies. Worst of all there's the cops and assorted officialdom. Give me actual invertebrates any day.

Shit! Sorry to hear that. Have you any idea what kind of snake it was? I'd hazard a guess, given your location, that it was a pit viper of sorts.

thx ..coulda been..I think the police doc did tell the wife's sister ( we were in Phuket) but guess it was not something that was deemed that important..
...been around the farm looking and clearing potential brush/shrub hiding places sealing up holes from burrowing animals etc near the house ..think the offending snake was hunting the mice and rats and gekos that are attracted to the house..been putting out poison for them too...
..the fang marks were about 3in apart..must of been something large!

Your concern for spiders is far outweighed by your stupidity. Why leave the safety of middle class where ever and allow your Thai darling to put you on the farm in bum fuck no where. "We build big house on land mama sell us cheap" meaning twice the going rate!! pfft Stupidity such as this deserves a bite or two on the arse and if the spiders don't do it well the atm dragon probably will. Oh yes the good life of swilling beer daily and pretending the brother in law/ actually her Thai husband is a loving caring guy. What are you people thinking? Were you farmers back home? Nice looking spiders though and thanks for sharing!

I can deal with mot daeng, but of late have been coming across those lovely giant Thai centipedes and nasty little brown scorpions [lethal] whilst clearing underbrush during the dry season on the principle property....

Spiders. On occasion we've had those giant-legged bushy variety [big as a fucking truck] set up camp in some quite corner of the house. They're quite intimidating just by their sheer size - don't know how venomous they might be.

One certainly can't live in a country setting [regardless of your ivory palace] without the hazards and benefits of all these critters....just live with it.

Thanks for another good thread and heartfelt congratulations for actually making it to the second page before (what I have noticed lately seems to be a trend on this forum) some cretinous A-hole that's been a member for a year or less here posts in an attempt to insult and degrade you but only manages to remind those of us with half a brain that enjoy ALL that Thailand offers the obvious reason for all that RED under their avatar and name !

Anyway, I enjoy your posts, so mai pen rai. Thanks again. celtic

And only 6 posts.

Remember when you joined, the nervousness of posting anything. Give the bugger a chance he may turn out to be great fellow. He may want to read all of Somtamslaps threads before commenting on his latest.

He/she will either disappear for another year or find the "right" level.

Kor tod krap Khun OhOh, you make a good point! But it is very annoying to be reading a nice enjoyable thread and have one of those guys pop up with their six-guns blazing and yes I remember when I first joined and the reluctance to post. Even now years later I only post to thank people for their threads or if I feel that I have something to contribute or sometimes to react in jest if I think something is funny.
Most of the members here seem to be polite, well mannered, good people and while not everyone agrees on many subjects it usually doesn't get nasty. So It was just my irritation towards some relative "newbies" who seem to think (although time on this forum does not always reflect knowledge and understanding of Thailand and it's people) that they know-it-all.
I hope that they all calm down and realize that you can learn a lot more with your mouth closed and your ears open. You get what you give and it starts with respect. I just don't want to see Teakdoor become like that other Thai forum.
Sorry for venting and thanks for the valid point you made.

If people ignore the more obvious ranters they tend to either quieten down with the blasts or just disappear altogether of there own accord.

I've walked into one of these.
I was eleven, barging along a path through the bushes with a stick, not looking up, but down, for snakes, when I bounced off a huge web.
First I'd seen that size.
Catches birds and eats them.
Usually eats giant moths etc.
Later, I saw another with a small yellow and green feathered bird in it, similar to the one described below.

Signature spider in Nagaland | Demotix.com

If you're looking straight ahead as you walk, you can see the white cross to warn you.
The main web can be up to four or so feet across.

Large moths and small birds can fly easily between the arms of the cross and the surrounding vegetation, so get caught.
Large birds cant, so don't try, so don't wreck the web.

(Farmers paint a white cross on the black plastic covered hay-bales to deter birds.)

The Thai version is smaller.


The Signature Spider | Scienceray

A very pretty spider.

I hike in the jungle a lot here in Thailand.
I've brushed up against these big spiders, like the ones in your pics, numerous times. (sometimes with my face, as you say, they like to be around head level)
They've never harmed me in any way.

The only thing I worry about in the jungle are the Tor, or tiger wasps.
I've been stung 3 times and each time, it hurts like hell for about 24 hours.
I run the other way when I see those now.

Speaking of spiders, I was shuffling my feet to the kitchen/laundry area the other night in a coma sort of state, flipped on light and saw this fella on the wall. Great to know he was cruising the place while I slept in peace.....I stared at him as I sipped my water, I shut off light and went back to bed. Of course I slept with one eye open.

^^I think it is a huntsman. They really are scary looking fuks cause of their size and the way the run sideways at 25 Km/h. Can give you a painful bite but in practice they are pretty timid and not dangerous.

I have got some monsters in the kitchen and they are good at keeping the cockroaches down.

don't know if this worm is actually a caterpillar, but there's one variety of green caterpillar i've been warned away from. very, very poisonous sting apparently. that said, i'm much more scared of centipedes. aggressive, poisonous, ugly and around here, big. spiders don't bother me much i've never been attacked by one.

3 inches apart??? Can anything other than a King Cobra have such big fangs? (Other than a python and their 'venom' won't be killing anyone/thing in 5 minutes...)

I think you're right. I used to get a large one in my living room/bathroom/kitchen many years back; Boris. He liked to spend time on my pillow, in the soap dish at 6am shower time, and peeking out from under the sofa - in the end, when I woke up at 2am and he/she was on my pillow, I had to get the missus to remove him (I was standing on a chair like a big girl at the time). They are scary looking and bloody fast (not faster than the missus and her Tesco bag 'glove'... ).
