    New zealand has one dangerous native spider the katipo which is related to the black widow spider in America however the katipo is listed endangered, is a shy non aggressive spider found on the coast and only bites in self defence. People have died from its bite although the last death was recorded in 1902 before antivenoms where heard of the last known bite was in 2015
