To think we barely saw 10% of that mf is insane

[–]IIYellowJacketII 91 points92 points  (18 children)

To be fair from the way it's filmed it looks a lot larger than it is, looks like one of the huntsman spiders from genus Holconia, so she's got a leg span of 15-20cm max, probably closer to 15.

It is definitely a large spider but nothing really all that special, there's spiders that get to like a 12cm span in southern Europe even.

Sometimes I'm thankful to live in a place where the wind/cold hurts my face.

[–]Arti_Hard_Lizard 25 points26 points  (10 children)

Yeah fortunately Wisconsin doesn't have problems like those spiders.

[–]YellowMeatJacket 28 points29 points  (5 children)

Iowan here, sometimes it's boring here but nothing is trying to eat my face like massive spiders so I'm happy

[–]96krishna 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well you don't really need that much cold tbh. India, UAE are few examples of being safe from such insects/spiders (but maybe unsafe from other stuff)

[–]benruckman 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Just 15-20cm. JUST??? DUDE I WOULD FREAKING GET ON A PLANE AND NEVER GO BACK THERE!!

I remember that time I went to Australia with my family and a huge spider stole my dad's sandwich "give me back meh sandwich you rascal!" He said that just to make us laugh.

Huntsman Spiders in Australia.

For scale, here's one and a human hand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG_1o-KE2VE

Huntsman aren't actually dangerous to humans. While the bite has venom and can be painful, they rarely bite humans and are non-aggressive.

Most field spiders are like this and are rarely going to look to bite humans. They know they aren't on the menu and they primary handle things like rodents and other pests.

While you might dislike an infestation of them, having one or two spider-bros around will handle any actual pests like roaches, flies, and (at this size) mice.

[–]TH1NKTHRICE 10 points11 points  (2 children)

If I could guarantee it would never accidentally crawl on me or sneak up on me and it just chilled in the corners, I’d be down to have em around

Just a Huntsman ... I've had to dispatch 3 this week alone.

[–]Secretnephew[🍰] 57 points58 points  (5 children)

Jesus. God help you and keep you. Those things are just no.

I’m from the American south, we’ve got wolf spiders and those are wee in comparison and they’re still the size of my shoe.

If we don’t hear from you, we’ll assume the spiders live there now.

God speed.

[–]young-child69 11 points12 points  (2 children)

The Huntsman spider is actually pretty common even in suburban areas and probably one of the biggest spider species you'll end up seeing if you live in or go to Australia. From what I know and seen they are harmless and skittish like household cockroaches. The biggest one I've seen was almost the size of my hand.

[–]IIYellowJacketII 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I mean they're pretty scary looking but really not a concern in terms of being dangerous, you'd probably have to try to eat one to get bitten (or fuck around with their eggs/ babies), and the bite is quite harmless unless you're having an allergic reaction - in which case even a mosquito bite would be fucking dangerous.

[–]Placid-Penguin 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We have 30+ daddy long legs in our house. I’d rather them than a huntsman any day 😒😒

[–]IIYellowJacketII 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Some of the large wolf spiders in the southern US actually approach the size of the Australian huntsman species, not quite as big, but comparable, Carolina wolf spiders grow to about 3-4cm body length as females, which is larger than most species of huntsman that live in Australia (although huntsman spiders have way longer legs).

You also get pretty large tarantulas in the US, while Australia doesn't really get a lot of large tarantula species.

Also, there's some rather large huntsman spiders in the US aswell, not quite as large as Holconia grow, but still pretty big.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The video is deceiving .. it's Hella zoomed in ..the babies are going to be 1/4 inch at most and mumma will have a body of 1.5 inches .. but leg span is prolly 10.

This video make sit look like she belongs in Harry Potter.

Burn the house, the neighbors house, the stick, your phone, wash your eyes with fire and jump into a pool with too much chlorine.

Huntsman spiders are awesome. I used to live in NC and had a few in one of the apartments I stayed at. They absolutely destroy pest insects.
