Halloween, Australian Style: This Mouse-Eating Huntsman Spider Will Give You Nightmares

huntsman

Welcome to Australia, where the huntsman spiders are huge and eat rodents. Halloween has nothing on this!

Say it with me: Oh, Hell No! 

As Jason Womal was starting his day in Coppabella, Queensland, he couldn’t have known that Halloween had already arrived. He also couldn’t have known what his neighbor meant when he said he was wondering if Jason wanted “to see something cool.” He probably assumed the man had built something, or maybe bought a new car.

He couldn’t have been ready for this. Here’s the video he took in his friend’s kitchen:

Naming his ‘pet’ Hermie, Womal was as incredulous as anyone. He can be heard in the video saying “What’s he gonna do with him?” and “Man that is so cool!”

Add the hunstman spider to the list of things in Australia that can kill you (or, at least, mice).
