A giant huntsman spider gave an unsuspecting home owner the shock of their lives when it appeared crawling on a wall.
Jake Gray from Cairns, Far North Queensland, has posted a photo of every arachnophobic's worst nightmare online with the caption "that's the spider's house now."
7 News Brisbane shared Jay's snap of the eight-legged beast on Twitter, sparking horrified reactions.
The news channel asked online: "Have you ever seen a spider this big? Jake Gray posted a photo of the mammoth huntsman spider online yesterday."
One man, tongue in cheek, commented: "It’s about now that I feel envy towards Americans, and their easy access to AR-15 assault rifles."
For some, the only rational thing to do after spotting a mammoth huntsman at home would be to sell the house.
"Holy snapping a***holes. The only thing it’s missing is a saddle it’s that big. Can see the 4 Sale sign going up on the front lawn. Yikes."
Another said: "Oh nooo! Picture should come with a health warning. I'd move out because as my mother said...they always bring a friend...and I'd be worrying myself sick about the said friend's location."
Not everyone responded to the tweet in similar horror though with some even pointing out the positives of having a huntsman around the home.
"It looks well fed bet there's no dead insects around his house. They're the best things ever..." A less scared follower commented.
Another wrote: "Some people keep them in their window frames to keep the fly population down. Huntsmen are oddly cute. I don't like taking them out because I rarely have a big enough cup and worry about their legs, but they aren't that scary."
As if Jake's new housemate was not intimidating enough, apparently spiders can get a whole lot worse down under.
"Just for the benefit of overseas readers, these aren’t even the worst type of spider in Australia. In fact, I doubt they’d even be in the top ten," Someone said.
