Sydney may be overwhelmed by the most venomous spiders in the world after heavy rains, the Australian Reptile Garden has said, warning that killer spiders may take refuge in homes as they escape from the floods.
Heavy rains caused flooding in New South Wales, and parts of northwestern Sydney suburbs are still submerged.
While the residents felt comfortable with the clarity of the weather yesterday, after days of rain, they received an “urgent warning” to prepare for the influx of some of the deadliest spiders settling in Sydney.
“The expected warm weather and high humidity levels are the perfect combination for these spiders to thrive in the coming days,” said park director Tim Faulkner. “With the massive floods that we saw in the Greater Sydney area, these reptiles were forced to leave their habitats and seek refuge in drier areas,” he added.
“Unfortunately, this may mean that it will arrive at homes very soon,” he added.
Pictures of thousands of spiders escaping from the flood waters, who are climbing fences and buildings, have spread on social media in recent days; What terrified the population.
