Comments & ID Thoughts

I have three of these spiders in my garden in table view Cape Town South Africa. I took this photo at night and it had completed a web between two trees about head high. From far it looked black in color but up close had beautiful red legs. It is very coin like in shape and has hairy legs. It’s body was slightly smaller than a five rand coin. Is it poisonous?
