Not 100 percent on the IMG_20200510_232648.jpgidentification of this one , however if its the whistling spider it can give a nasty bite .(severe pain , headache , nausea vomiting , for up to 6 hours ).
That's not really too worrying by Australian standards .

Not nice for dogs and cats though . Fatal to dogs and cats within one hour.

Heavy body which fell on me whilst going to the toilet in the dark at night .did not seem like it should be able to climb the wall with that weight .
