Meet Charlotte, The Massive Huntsman Spider That Is The Size Of A Human Head!


A photo of an enormous Hunstman spider spotted in Queensland, Australia is terrifying arachnophobes everywhere!

Barnyard Betty's Rescue, an animal rescue and sanctuary located in the Brisbane Valley shared the photos of the arachnid Charlotte on its Facebook page.

Initially posted last year, Barnyard Betty's staff admitted they were left stunned when the photos of Charlotte began being shared by thousands around the globe this week.

The colossal creature, pictured crawling across a broom, was snapped by workers on an animal rescue farm in Queensland, Australia.

Named Charlotte by the animal rescuer who moved it from harm’s way the colossal creepy crawly will look like a waking nightmare to anyone with a fear of spiders.

Despite their massive size and lightning speed Huntsman spiders are largely harmless to humans.

The snaps, taken in October last year, recently resurfaced on the internet and have since gone viral. While some commenters have described the arachnid as a ‘beautiful creature,’ others begged the question why anyone would get up close and personal with an arachnid of such formidable stature.

‘Why In HOLY HELL would you touch this horrible f*****g demon spawn!?!’ wrote one commenter.

‘100% approve of and respect what you're doing here, but please, for the love of God keep that thing and all of its family and friends OVER THERE and the heck away from me,’ wrote another.

All joking aside, there are some suggestions Charlotte could be the biggest huntsman ever discovered.

Although the bite of a huntsman isn't dangerous to humans, the real concern is their fearsome appearance for most of the people.

Last month a man crashed his car into Lake Cathie in NSW after a huntsman fell on his lap causing him to accidentally slam his foot on the accelerator.

Charlotte's fame spreads across the globe. Its story received lots of news coverage by the media from all over the world!

Barnyard Betty's said they released Charlotte on the farm shortly after rescuing her, adding: “Can you believe someone wanted to kill this amazing creature?”

The sanctuary hopes the viral photos help raise awareness about their animal rescue efforts and are currently raising funds through GoFundMe to help keep the struggling farm open after a long drought.
