“They’re so cute!”
This is a huntsman spider, the world’s largest (and possibly friendliest) arachnid.
It’s nearly impossible not to notice when one of these beauties decides to migrate indoors. A huntsman spider in the home of one Australian family, however, did more than that.
She had a family. A large number of children.
Claudia was at home with her family the other day when her kid informed her that something was wrong in her room. When Claudia went to investigate, she discovered dozens of tiny huntsman spiders hatching near a window, having emerged from an egg sac that the family had overlooked.
Claudia told The Dodo, “It was certainly an unexpected surprise.” “We had a huntsman spider here and there, but I had no idea we had a complete kindergarten scurrying about.”
The small spiders made quite an effect, as you can see:
Creepy? Claudia isn’t one of them. Her reaction to the spider babies was quite different.
“They’re so adorable!” she exclaimed. “I’m not going to put them to death.”
And she was true to her word.
Claudia chose to gently open the window rather than aggressively evict the spider babies (or worse). As a result, the newborns will be able to go outside on their own.
“We decided to leave them alone. The next morning, they were all gone “she stated
The huge spider mother who’d placed her eggs there had chosen the ideal location for her children’s nursery.
“We adore animals,” Claudia explained.
