Hell no. no no no.

Since when did these exist in the UK?

I am sure they wouldn't bother humans normally (unless poked with a stick) but...I mean....just no.

I don't mind little spiders, but I draw the line at spiders that are big enough to take the rolled up newspaper off me and do the crossword

That's creepy and all but I was hoping we'd get to hear him scream like a 3 year old girl when it came out.

Not exaggerating, but I would have thrown up.

Judging by his calmness I imagine he already knew it was there.

Gahhh! I'm with you OP. That thing is big enough to carry my chihuahua off.

Nope. Nope. Just nope.

You don't have to go home... But you sure as hell can't stay here!

Kudos to you

spiders do not want to have anything to do with you. here in California, there are black widows everywhere, I use gloves if I'm going to go outside and start lifting crap up that could be a hiding place for them. I actually allow some of the daddy long legs spiders to remain, they are excellent flying bug catchers, and they are harmless to humans. and my house is not engulfed in webs like some cartoons, if anyone was going to ask.

Maybe it got separated from its (larger) subterranean family in the deeper caves

There should be a law about saying things like that.

THANK YOU. ...I've been seeing what I thought were "funnel webs" in and around my garden in Winnipeg - didn't know the term "tube web." ...Anyway, all my research said funnel web spiders were exclusive to Australia, and their venom was generally fatal. Have been meaning to ask about them here and voila! you answered a lot of my questions.

That wasn't a giant spider. It was a decent sized spider.

Urgh, yuk. I am pleased to read at the link that it is just a painful bite for a few hours, no panic.
Gotta say give me one of them in my shed over some of the horror killers in Australia and elsewhere though...anyday.

...Oh, and I know I'm being totally picky, but I always like to be clear about when we use the term 'UK', the island of Jersey is a self-governing Crown dependency. It is not part of the UK, it is a 'possession of the Crown'. Strange, I know, but that's it's international politically legal status.

It is giant compared the pathetic balls of fluff you normally see meandering around living rooms in the UK.

But yes, I have seen some of the Spiders in the US and OZ, and quite frankly, there aren't enough "Nopes" in the world to express my feelings towards them.

Star for that my friend, I've learned a little something.

My own fault for reading "proves the spiders are setting up home in parts of the UK" further on in the piece.

That's the Mirror for you though.

Same in my house. anything that's too big to get up the hoover is her territory.

I have recently purchased a kitten as the winter is drawing in, they are the best Spider assassins.

I hate me too.

I also shared it on Facebook, I don't want to be the only person scarred for life by it.
