Sydney Funnel-web Spider Male Sydney funnel-web spiders are Australia's most dangerous spider. These aggressive spiders grab onto their victims and bite several times, injecting a very poisonous venom. Some people have died from the bite of these spiders, but since 1980 when a Sydney funnel-web spider antivenom was invented, no-one has died from the bite of a Sydney funnel-web spider.
