Timeline Photos Fun fact for your Friday: Spiders aren't poisonous. Poison has to be swallowed, inhaled or delivered via touch through skin. Many are however, venomous. Venom is injected into a wound through a bite. See LIVE venom milking in our Venom Lab at Spiders - Alive and Deadly australianmuseum.net.au/landing/spiders-alive-and-deadly
