Red Back Spider – Australia’s Architects Of The Insect World

Spiders, creepy crawly spiders. Up your arms and in your hair. In your shoes and under your chair. In your bed all while you sleep. Some bite none and some bite deep. Spiders.

Now that you’ve been suitably primed, Rebel Voice is happy to present to you a program on the venomous Red Back spider of Australia. These little beauties, relatives to the Black Widow of North America, are amazing architects and engineers, designing wondrous webs wherever they feel real estate prices will rise. That usually means somewhere that humans won’t appreciate.

This brief glimpse into the world of arachnids is narrated by the always enticing David Attenborough who somehow manages to make dangerous spiders sound almost cuddly. Perhaps to some they are?
