– There’s one right there, got one right there.
Whooo, that is creepy.
Oh, no, no, no, she’s done it.
不 不 不 她跑了！
Oh, there it is right, there, look at that!
When it comes to handling spiders, I am no stranger to danger,
as in the past, I have let several species,
including the infamous black widow, skitter across my bare skin.
Oh, she’s actually spun a little thread of web,
she’s becoming secured to me.
Oh, its actually about to bite.
Even the golden orb weaver,
one of the largest, most common species in Central and South America,
cast its sticky spider silk across my hands and fingers.
Okay, spider is on my arm, okay.
However, there are also species, like the Brazilian wandering spider,
That’s simply far too dangerous to risk making direct contact with.
Whoa (laughs), that was a little nerve-wracking!
Today the crew and I are on location in Meandarra, Australia,
one of the continent’s most common yet potentially dangerous species.
And I know everyone is waiting in anticipation to find out
what will be my next close encounter of the arachnid kind.
So without further delay,
let’s see, if I can find the redback spider.
Alright, guys, so we’ve done some pretty popular arachnid videos.
A lot of you have written in the comment sections
and have asked,”Coyote, if you ever go Australia,
can you feature the redback spider?”
Which is pretty much the Australian version of the black widow.
Now these spiders, follow me,
are really common in areas of debris and rubble.
And right over here, we’ve got a pile of tires.
And I have a good feeling
that if we flip these tires and look on the inside,
we may come across one of these creepy crawlies.
Come on, let’s check it out.
Now, I don’t want to just go reaching my hands up underneath that rim,
but I already see some webbing.
This is actually a really good sign.
– [Mark] Now, why would a tire be a good home for a redback spider?
– [Coyote] Well, because it is dark, it is warm,
and it’s the perfect place to spin a web.
And sure enough, right here, go ahead bring your camera up a little bit closer.
果不其然 就这儿 把相机拿近一点
And there is no spider on this.
See here, you have some really loose webbing, looks very scattered.
看这里 有一些很松散的蛛网 看着很乱
There’s a good chance that that is redback webbing.
what I don’t want to do is just tuck my fingers up underneath this tire to lift them
because that oftentimes is how people are bitten.
They press their fingers down on the arachnid.
It feels like it’s gon na get squished,
and then it inflicts a bite.
So what I’m going to do is gently pick this up,
I’m going to roll it towards you a little bit, Mark.
Oh, oh, there’s a big cricket there.
And I’m going to just gently roll it in the light.
A big cricket creature, but no spider in that one.
There is webbing, but oh, no, there’s a little male.
有网 不 有一只小的雄性蜘蛛
There’s a little male right inside there.
See you down there?
– [Mark] Oh, yeah.
– That’s a male redback.
Now they’re considerably smaller than the black widows that we find in the States.
But we’re not really interested in the male,
what we’re interested in looking at is the female.
And this tire is full of a lot of rocks.
I don’t think we’re going to (mumbles)…
Just gently put this in this direction, look on the underside.
yeah, there’s definitely some webbing.
Okay, there’s a lot of web down here, too (mumbles).
There’s one right there, got one right there.
Right on the inside of the tire.
Hold on a second,
let me see if I can flip it up and get it into the light.
Can you see that, Mark?
The spider is right there.
But that’s pretty cool to see its shadow.
You see my finger pointing right at it, Mario.
– [Mario] Yep.
– [Coyote] Whooo, that is creepy.
And actually, I think you can see the shadow of a male just behind her.
oftentimes, males or youngsters will hang out in the webs with the female.
But she is cannibalistic and will occasionally feed
and will occasionally feed on not only her mate but also her young.
Now what I want to do is gently coax the spider out of this tire using a stick.
This is one dangerous little game of Operation. Right here, folks.
Come on, crawl on the stick, you.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, okay.
耶 耶 耶 好的
That webbing is pretty sticky.
– [Mark] Now she’ll rebuild her web, won’t she?
– [Coyote] Oh yeah, absolutely.
Oh no, no, no, she’s done it. Hold a second
不 不 不 她跑了 等等
There she is.
– [Mark] Got her?
– Got it!
– [Mark] Nice!
– Wow, look at that arachnid.
There we go, that is the redback spider,
Australia’s version of the black widow.
You’ll notice it’s a bit smaller than some of the black widows we’ve featured before.
And this species does not grow as large as the American black widow.
Wow, look at how long their legs are,
and that big, bulbous abdomen.
What you’ll notice about the redback is that
it gets its name from that distinct, aposematic red coloration on the back of its abdomen.
As we know, the black widows in the States have the hourglass shape beneath their abdomen.
And these spiders do have coloration on the underside of their abdomen,
but it certainly is that big red spot on their backs
that is an immediate warning that
that I am venomous, you do not want to bite by me?
Look at that balance.
Such a cool-looking spider.
Now the bite of this spider does contain neurotoxic venom,
and it is much more potent than that of the black widow.
So you may be saying to yourselves, “Coyote, aren’t you going to free-handle this one?”
所以 你可能会嘀咕：狼叔 你就不能徒手把玩这只蜘蛛吗？
Honestly, and so guys, it probably would not bite me,
说实话 伙计们 它可能不会咬我
but it is not worth the risk.
Now if you are bitten by one of these spiders,
it’s not likely to kill you,
and they did develop an anti-venom in the mid-50s
that has helped a lot of people overcome this bite.
Now this is a spider species that is very common,
especially in residential areas,
and it is one of species that people are bitten by almost on a daily basis.
Close to 10,000 bites a year are reported in Australia.
If you are bitten by one of these arachnids,
I definitely suggest seeking medical attention,
but there are very few cases of adults suffering negative affects
但是有极少的成人案例相比于胃痉挛 头疼 恶心呕吐
other than cramping of stomach, headache and nausea, vomiting,
and intense pain near the bitten area.
now depending on how much venom is injected into the victim
a lot of times these spiders will actually inflict what’s considered a warning bite.
They can actually regulate how much venom they pump into something.
Now if it’s a prey item, something like a moth or a small other insect,
they’ve been known to even take things as large small lizards,
What they will do is actually flick out this stick spider glue from their spinnerets.
They will let the prey get entangled in that webbing,
and then once it has sort of wrapped itself up,
they will strike forward several times,
inflicting various bites to parts of the victim’s body.
Slowly, paralysis begins to set in, the victim dies,
慢慢地 猎物被麻痹 然后死了
and then they have their meal.
Now similar to the black widow, this species is cannibalistic,
and after the females have mated with the males,
they will kill the male and eat it.
The females have actually even been known to eat their young.
This spider species has extremely small fangs.
And oftentimes when people are bitten,
they don’t even know that a bite has occurred
until close to 15 minutes afterward,
when you experience this intense, hot, radiating pain from the bite site.
被咬者会经历强烈的 发热的 辐射性的疼痛
Now it will swell up and be red, about the size of a silver dollar,
and that pain will continue to spread.
Now one indication that you have been bitten by a redback
is intense sweating and goosebumps actually on the appendage that has been bitten.
Now this is one of the most common and widespread spider species in all of Australia,
and the reason that so many people are bitten by the species
is because it is oftentimes found in residential areas,
anywhere that has debris, it could be tires,
it could be flat pieces of wood, it could be garbage near your trashcan.
If this spider has the opportunity to spin a web
and potentially catch prey, there’s a good chance
there may be one in your backyard.
But remember, this is not a creature you need to be afraid of.
These spiders have no interest in biting humans.
As you can see, all it’s doing right now,
it’s trying to get away from us
and back into the shade and shelter of its tire. Well,
Well, you guys requested it, and sure enough,
we managed to get the Australian version of the black widow-the redback
up close for the cameras.
I’m Coyote Peterson.
Be brave, stay wild.
We’ll see you on the next adventure.
Alright, let’s stack her tires back up,
and release her back into her home. Alright,
Alright, see you later.
The Australian outback is home to many potentially dangerous animals
and hails as having the most deadly snake and spider species in the world.
If you were ever to come upon one of these creatures in the wild,
It is imperative that you do not attempt to interact with it.
Always admire the animal from a safe distance
because your life could depend upon it.
