No idea where to put this thread.....

But can you say "ICK!!!" I like to think I'm a pretty tough female, but I think I'd FREAK if one of these things ever fell on me.



And in case you were thinking they probably look far worse than they are, this one’s actually quite venomous. Oh, and fast — because of course it is. So now imagine being chased by a poisonous, sprinting, face-sized spider.

Face-sized spider found


*FACE SIZED?!?!?!?*

Seriously?

Of all the different objects to compare the size of the spider to, you chose the FACE?!?!?!?

WHY?

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS???

Omg....I hate scorpions even more than I hate spiders!!! The funny part is that I used to have pet spiders as a kid. Suddenly, literally overnight, I developed a fear of them. Same with snakes....I used to have them as pets too. Now, I have a completely unexplainable need to avoid them.

Here's an alien facehugger, about the same size:




And yet here those words are, straight from northern Sri Lanka, where scientists say they’ve discovered a new type of giant tarantula with a leg span of up to eight inches. Grab your rulers and mirrors, because yep, that’s about the average length of a human noggin. As if that weren’t frightening enough (or cool enough — you pick), this particular spider was found living in trees. Anyone who’s ever walked beneath a tree and wound up brushing away a tiny spider knows that some arachnids enjoy an arboreal life, dangling from silken threads to surprise unsuspecting trail-walkers.

Now imagine one the size of a volleyball landing on you like one of the facehuggers from Alien.

And in case you were thinking they probably look far worse than they are, this one’s actually quite venomous. Oh, and fast — because of course it is. So now imagine being chased by a poisonous, sprinting, face-sized spider.
