Giant Tasmanian Spider Devours a Possum in Shocking Photos
(Australia, of course)

Every single thing in Australia is designed to kill you.
Posted on a Facebook group called Tasmanian insects and spiders, the photos of the hairy huntsman spider is making headlines around the world.

These viral photos are not for the faint-hearted. It shows a giant spider trying to eat a very small possum:

It makes one wonder if the many-legged beast could make it away with a human baby – let's hope not!

That doesn’t mean that you won’t find one in your flat or in the car.

The Australian Museum states:

“Huntsman spiders of many species sometimes enter houses. They are also notorious for entering cars, and being found hiding behind sun visors or running across the dashboard.”
