don't like spiders and I'm going to assume neither do you, so I guess
we can count ourselves lucky were weren't the ones to find a
fucking huge large spider in a shipping container from Japan.
The RSPCA were contacted on Friday, after it was discovered by a storage company worker who wasn't sure what to do with the giant arachnid. It had scuttled out of the container and onto UK shores.
Take a look at it here, although I warn you that it's scary as hell...
The spider had stowed away from the other side of the world and animal
collection officer (ACO) Naemi Kilbey went to a farm in Old Newton,
near Stowmarket, Suffolk, to deal with the situation.
who found the spider definitely thought it was a Friday the 13th
jinx," ACO Kilbey said.
must admit I'd get a bit of a shock if I was unloading some stock a
huge Huntsman spider crawled out!
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."
Kilbey took the spider to a local exotic animal specialist who will keep her for the time being.
The RSPC would advise anyone who comes across an unusual exotic animal or any animal in distress to contact their 24-hour emergency line on 0300 1234 999.
