A combination of large fangs and strong venom makes the Sydney funnel-web spider one of the deadliest spiders on the planet. Certainly the most dangerous spider in Australia, which has no shortage of dangerous arachnids, the Sydney funnel-web spider will display its fangs when threatened.

With fangs that typically measure up to be larger than those of a brown snake, the Sydney funnel-web spider's fangs are not only large but also tough enough to break through human fingernails or toenails. However, since the anti-venom to this spider's bite was developed in the 1980s, no human deaths have been reported as a result of its bite.
