I was always hoping to get a huntsman family into our houses so they'd lay like 20 eggs and freak the girls out. Never got that lucky though. Just had loads of wolf spiders and a few redbacks. Tons of cockroaches though, which the huntsmen would have loved!
Oh, and there was that time in Sydney I caught a funnel web (after it lunged at me twice!) only to find out months later what it actually was!
