I f*cking hate Spiders. To be honest, I’m pretty sure that a lot of you guys don’t like them much either. I mean, they have 8 LEGS and run around my bedroom as if they own the place. But thankfully, we weren’t the ones who discovered a giant ass spider in a Japanese shipping container.

The RSPCA were recently contacted after a shipment worker was unsure what to do with the giant
thing from hell spider. You can check out a video of it here:
The person who collected the giant Arachnid, Naemi Kilbey, said:
“Workers who found the spider definitely thought it was a Friday the 13th jinx. I must admit – I’d get a bit of a shock if I was unloading some stock a huge Huntsman spider crawled out!
Although these spiders, usually from Australia , are large and can grow to more than 15cm in size, they are generally harmless. While a bite from one of these arachnids could cause some pain and discomfort, they are not a highly venomous spider.”
If you come across an unusual exotic animal or any animal in distress, please contact the RSPCA 24-hour emergency line on 0300 1234 999.
