The '''Sydney funnel-web spider''' is a spider native to Sydney, NSW, Australia and lives in burrows in the shape of funnels hence the name. They are very dangerous to humans and can kill when biting them in just 15 minutes. They are considered the second most venomous spider only being less venomous than the [[Brazilian wandering spider]]. Unlike most spiders, provoking them is not all to get them to bite you and if you are bitten it is a medical emergency and you must get antivenom as soon as possible.
