At his neighbor’s house, a man filmed a monolithic huntsman spider crawling up the wall carrying a fully sized, dead mouse.
The huntsman spider, can grow up to 1 foot in leg span and at times gets termed as being the “size of a dinner plate.” While most folks would presume a spider that big is nothing more than the material of nightmares, Jason Womal got to witness the chilling arachnid doing more than just creeping around corners and making people shrill.
Womal, of Queensland, was preparing to depart for work one day when his neighbor invited him over to see something rad. “We proceed[ed] to his place and he shows me this. Huntsman trying to eat a mouse,” Womal posted on Facebook. In the clip, an absolutely gigantic huntsman is scaling up a mini-fridge in the neighbor’s home, dragging a sizable mouse corpse right behind it.
Kidding, the Australian tradesman stated the community has embraced the spider and dubbed it Hermie. “Ok guys so just letting you all know that the spider is fine. We have named him Hermie, we have adopted him and he is now running his own extermination business out of our town Coppabella. Oh and he is now paying rent. Lol.”
Huntsman spiders are actually pretty harmless to humans—not because their without a venomous bite but because they tend to be antsy and lack the hostility necessary to be deemed a major threat. More likely they’ll retreat when a human comes near than attack, so these harrowing-looking crawlers actually aren’t that bad to have around.
