When people is so dumb that they don’t even bother googleing that spider (which doesn’t have any poison whatsoever.)
Prawns, the caption said nothing about whether the spider was lethal or not.
Perhaps if I flipped the image upside down it would easier for you to read.
Prawns…..All spiders have some amount of poison….
It’s just a harmless huntsman spider.
Every Aussie knows only the little spiders are poisonous…

That spider is a huntsman. – they are harmless if left alone.
Venom toxicity – the bite of Huntsman Spiders is of low risk (non toxic) to humans. They are a non-aggressive group of spiders. However, a large individual can give a painful bite. Beware in summer when the female Huntsman Spider is guarding her egg sacs or young.
Negative NO spider has Poison. No snakes have poison… NO CREATURE that can bite you and inject something from their venom glands is poisonous. They are venomous. Just like Poison arrow frogs are not venomous. They are poisonous!
There is a big difference between Poison and Venom. Venom if ingested cant kill you, it has to get into your blood stream. It might make you sick but it wont kill you. poison can only hurt you if it is ingested.
This is why it is safe to suck out venom from snake bites… It will make you sick, but it wont kill you if it gets in your stomach.
Some people still think daddy long leg spiders are poisonous… Some people!
Does this mean if I swat it, I’ll see a damage floater?
