As with many villains, this one's know by several aliases, including "Argiope aurantia", "Black and Yellow Garden Spider" and "Writing Spider". Unlike many villains however, this one is completely harmless to humans. The worst that could happen is that Argiope aurantia could walk on you. Of course, this little nugget of information doesn't comfort Kerry-Anne at all, and is, in fact, precisely what she fears most.
"But it might crawl on me!", Kerry exclaimed with a look of horror creeping over her face.
So, when going for a walk in one of our many nature reserves, be on the lookout for Argiope - you should find at least one or two with which to horrify your partner. :)
