Way Too Creepy.

Google image

We found a spider in the living room last night and were concerned that it might be a funnel web spider (see picture above).
We think though that it was only a trapdoor (see picture below).  Still, that was way too much excitement post dinner!

The funnel web was listed in our deadly/red table while the trapdoor was listed in our mildly toxic and "friendly" green table on our spider chart!

The main difference to our eye was the difference in spinnerets.
