Experts who make the life saving anti-venom for one of Australia’s and the world’s deadliest spiders, are now calling on the public to catch the dangerous spider. Keepers at the Australian Reptile Park have today said that stocks of the anti-venom for Funnel Web bites are running low and require more of the spiders for it’s production. Spider keeper Julie Mendezona, from the Australian Reptile Park, said: ‘Usually we are the ones saying to people if you see a dangerous animal leave it alone and it will leave you alone and you won’t have any run-ins.But it is really important that we turn to the community to actually obtain our funnel-webs. It’s the most productive way for us to get these animals.’
