In a statement made by the Australian Reptile Park, it was reported that the spider, which is said to have teeth that can pierce a human fingernail, was found on the Central Coast, about 80 kilometers north of Sydney.

Experts said the deadly Sydney funnel-slot spider, called "Hercules", is the largest male specimen ever found in the country.

The 7.9-centimeter-long "Hercules" broke the record of the male funnel-nesting spider named "Colossus" found in the park in 2018.

"Hercules" is expected to contribute to the park's antivenom program, which has been running since 1981. These spiders are essential for antivenom production are milked for poison.

Sydney funnel-nesting spiders are usually between 1 and 5 centimeters long.
