More about spiders

There are thousands of different types of spiders in Queensland and while they all are different from each other depending on their environment, food source and other factors, they all have some characteristics in common.

What you will find in Queensland

There are two distinct groups of spiders – primitive spiders and modern spiders. Primitive spiders as the name suggests are the least evolved and have remained unchanged for millions of years.

In Queensland they include the trapdoor and funnel web spiders. The common spiders we encounter in our daily lives are the moderns. Of the dozens of different types inhabiting south-east Queensland, the most frequently seen include the wolf spider, red back spider, white-tailed spider, huntsman, black house spider and daddy-long-legs.
