eestlin said: Is that spider lethal or just poisonous?

The venom in the bite of a whitetail spider has reached almost mythical status as flesh-eating, necrotic and deadly.

Though it will result in a very painful wound, and potentially quite dangerous to those with susceptible health issues, or the very young or old, the bite of the whitetail is not generally considered lethal

This is a soundtrack to winter in Hobart, Tasmania. Reading in pools of sunlight, fungi-hunting in the rainforest, sitting and staring out the window. All tracks are recorded live in one take without overdubs, with a bass guitar and effects chain.
