"A large spider with a lethal bite."
Folio Bruti[src]

The whitetail spider is a type of spider known for its fatal bite; it is resistant to the Knockback Jinx, but can be killed with a Fire-Making Spell.

Behind the scenes

  • The Whitetail Spider may be based on the White-tailed spider native to Australia and introduced to New Zealand. It is widely believed that the bite of this spider can lead to skin necrosis, however this has not be scientifically proven.
