If you have a fear of spiders, turn away now. A huge huntsman spider thought to be the biggest ever found has been discovered by an animal farm rescuer in Brisbane Valley, Australia.
Named ‘Charlotte’ by the worker from Banyard Betty’s Rescue, the “magnificent girl” was found in a valley last year, but only now have photos of the creepy arachnid gone viral.
Though the venom from a huntsman spider bite is not usually dangerous to humans, their appearance can be somewhat menacing. Many of the species grow large, with the leg span of male spiders reaching 12 inches in countries such as Laos.
The rescue worker said: “I released her here on the farm after rescuing her so I can’t get anymore photos or videos of her. She was a beautiful, calm spider, not aggressive in any way and like most spiders she just wanted to go about her business eating bugs and living in peace.”
