Giant Huntsman Spider Traps Queensland Couple In Their Home.
Suddenly, all these manly men began to flee like frightened mice.
One claims that it was the size of a guinea pig while another put up a poker card next to it to illustrate the size of the arachnid. No wonder they fled in terror. Most of us would have done the same.
Then there's this handsome fellow which appeared in a reptile park in Australia.
The Huntsman spider measured 6 1/3-inch (16 cm) and surprised zookeepers, who believe that it may very well be one of the largest arachnids found in the country so far.

Okay, so they might look scary, but they're really just misunderstood like a lot of things.
In most cases, the Huntsman spider isn't out to get you. It just wants to be your friend and hang out. It could ultimately become man's new best friend if you gave it a chance and didn't try to squash it with the sole of your shoe.
They actually mean you no harm, meaning they won't sting you with venom or anything.
They seek peaceful co-existence with their humanoid brothers and sisters, and if you opened your minds and your hearts, you'd see that you don't have to fear them at all.
You rarely, if ever, have to worry about a Huntsman biting another human.
They don't do that as a rule unless you're bugging them, and that's pretty much the general rule for any creature. But if they do bite, don't panic. It's usually pretty mild and harmless.
