home from Melbourne today and my regular taxi driver had an orange juice waiting for me because it was so hot, so lovely of him!
Later on we opened the garage doors to let some of the heat out of the house (33 inside at 8.30pm = urgh) and a spider dropped down from the door and it had a very unusual 'growth' on it's back. Brendan to the rescue with a tupperware container and we scooped it into that while I got my spider book.
Turned out to be a female wolf spider (not poisonous) with her babies riding around on her back, 10's and 10's of them! brendan relocated her to the reserve behind the house by way of a gentle push from the tupperware container (hope the babies had parachutes).
