Redback Spider

Up close and personal with Australia's most well known spider, the Redback Spider. Latrodectus hasseltii
Although the redback spider has a nasty bite it is its specially designed web that makes it such an efficient killer. Watch it build this web, catch a few insects and discover what gives it such a brilliant red streak.
