Like the rest of Australia, Sydney is home to quite the collection of creepy crawlies. From the giant Sydney huntsman to the deadly and venomous Sydney funnel-web and redback spiders, the largest city on the continent is quite accommodating to a wide range of arachnids. While several are deadly and capable of delivering powerful bites, most of these live in the outback. However, they have been spotted in civilized parts as well.
