A Brave Woman Rescues The World’s Largest Spider In Queensland

Images have went viral online showing a giant huntsman spider crawling over a broom.


The images were taken at an animal rescue farm in Queensland’s Brisbane Valley of Australia.



The colossal creepy crawly is bound to look like a waking nightmare to anyone with a fear of spiders.

“Beautiful Charlotte the spider, one of my best rescues yet 🙂 To answer some of your questions: She is a Huntsman Spider and we are located in Queensland Australia and yes she is very real and very large and not photo shopped!! I released her here on the farm after rescuing her so I can’t get anymore photos or video her I’m sorry. She was going to be killed by humans. She was a beautiful, calm spider, not aggressive in any way and like most spiders she just wanted to go about her business eating bugs and living in peace. She didn’t or doesn’t need to be killed! Poor spiders are so misunderstood!


All creatures great and small are welcome here at Barnyard Betty’s Rescue a safe haven no matter how you look!!”
