What spider is this?

Drunk ausgay here. Got bitten by this cheeky c**t 20 minutes ago. He decided to crawl back to where I grabbed him.
What type of spider is it? I'm not sure if my finger is about to fall off. It drew blood and was fairly painful initially but I haven't noticed any effects.
For references it's around 5-6cm wide.

    Does Australia even have brown recluses? I feel like they have way scarier spiders

      Probably no brown recluses and nothing native, though there are a couple introduced species. The mouse spider probably the most intimidating looking species we have here, though as far as I know there's never been a death. I reckon south america still has everywhere else beat though when it comes to anything that can bite and kill you.

      Are you talking about Heteropoda venatoria?
      That's a pan-tropical species that is thought to have originated in Asia.
      It's harmless, though.
      If you want to worry yourself about introduced spiders in Florida, watch out for the Chilean recluse, which is more dangerous than the brown recluse (which Florida also has, alongside black widows and other widow and recluse species).

    The easiest way to catch huntsmen and put them outside is to carefully place a transparent plastic take-away food container over them (being careful not to squash them or break their legs).
    Then gently slide a thin piece of cardboard or a stiff piece of paper under the container while still holding the container against the floor or wall. Being careful again not to trap its legs while you're doing this.
    You have now safely captured a huntsman and can take it outside and put it in the garden where it belongs. It will eat lots of wienerroaches and other pests for you.
    I never kill hunstmen. I take them outside in food containers every time and have never been bitten.

    How did you pick it up? I always handle spiders by nudging them from behind at a low angle, then threadmilling them with flat, open hands and so far that went well.
    I ask because I plan to handle a big huntsman myself one day, but I don't want to get gnawed on lel.

      I aggressively grabbed it with a tissue like a moron and it's fangs sunk right through the thin fabric. Then despite trying to be helpful I flung it across the room from reflex

        lmao, I see. That does explain the bite. Hope you and spider are doing ok. Don't you have some plastic container or glass lying around to catch it with?

          Anon you inspired me, I didn't want to see my lil homie get in trouble. So like some autistic warrior I used a plastic bowl and spoon to lure the spider into the bowl, then outside. Now I can finally get some fricking sleep, with the knowledge that both human and huntsmankind can coexist.

        Spiders are quick to learn if you pose a threat or not. It can be surprisingly easy to just pick them up at that point

      Nah I think like other anon said (

      That is a pretty standard huntsman.

      ) it's a huntsman so she'll be right. Was only afraid of it being a recluse since it can cause your hand to rot off or some shit.

      I was trying to take it outside since the other people I live with are terrified of spiders and they'll spray it. Too bad she's an ungrateful b***h who had to bite me and now I'm too scared to wrangle her again

        Recluses can hardly even bite without you pressing on them since their fangs are so small, the flesh rotting thing is mostly a myth anyways

            Yes, OP's huntsman spider is very brown. No idea what that other anon was on about.

                Huntsmen come in various colours, most definitely including brown.
                "Huntsman" is a catch-all term for various species across various genera within the family Sparassidae. It's not a single species (and colouring can vary, even within a single species).
                OP's photo is a huntsman, and it is most definitely brown - like most of the hundreds of huntsmen I have caught and released over the past 40 years or so...

        1- huntsman are very large spiders (avg 1" body, 3-5" legspan), and brown recluse are not (avg size .25"-.75" total)
        2 - while huntsman is technically a family of spiders, people generally mean the one who exclusively lives in Australia/New Zealand when talking about a huntsman spider, brown recluse habitat is exclusive to SE United States
        3 - while both are hunters and don't use a web, the huntsman is "bold" and will have no issue being in the open in daylight while the brown recluse is active at night and generally prefers to hide in dark areas (like in your shoe) this the whole "recluse" part of the name
        4 - a brown recluse has a violin-shaped mark on top of the body, but while a huntsman spider does not, there are plenty of other brownish spiders that do - so if a small brown spider has the mark, it might or might not be a recluse, but if it is missing the mark it isn't one

        As an ausgay who's seen plenty of flat huntsmans, the differences are quite apparent. Probably the biggest visual difference for me would be the legs tapering a lot more towards the end. There's also the shape of the abdomen, and the pedipalps tend to hang out in a distinct way I think.

          You bozos do realize that brown recluses have a body that's smaller than a viagra, right? Even if brown recluses shared the same habitat there is no way to mistake a huntsman from anything else unless you can't tell the difference between a manatee and a chihuahua
