Giant Huntsman Spider Traps Queensland Couple In Their Home.
It's common knowledge that if you leave spiders alone, they'll leave you alone.
Unless, of course, you happen to be working in your yard and you accidentally grab one. Again, most of them aren't poisonous, but their bites will sting, and no, it won't turn you into Spider-Man afterwards.
The truth is that giant huntsman spiders are often misunderstood by people.
They're actually, not aggressive at all. They're considered quite calm, and if you take a closer look, they're really quite beautiful as they go about their day, taking care of business. So there's really no need to try and exterminate them.
Barnyard Betty's Rescue/Facebook
Another huntsman spider was spotted lurking in Queensland near Barnyard Betty's Rescue.
The spider, which was named Charlotte, was spotted on a broom by the animal rescue shelter, and the people there assured everyone that there's no reason to be afraid.
Granted, these spiders have huge mandibles, which can be terrifying.
Maybe the animal shelter would consider including huntsman spiders to its members of species that they care for and protect. For now it seems that Charlotte will get to live another day.
Huntsman spiders are like humans, and show up when you least expect them.
Just ask a group of Burly British removalists who were left positively horrified when one of these creatures emerged from a shipping container they had been unloading in Surrey.
