A woman in Australia was left shocked after she discovered dozens of spiders crawling the walls of her daughter’s room.
When Claudia’s daughter called into her bedroom little did she expect to uncover the Huntsmen spiders hiding behind the curtain. “There were some spiders on the window, and I pulled some curtains back,” she told 9News.
However, the Sydney based make-up artist decided not to disturb the spiders, “They’re just going to walk away… let nature be,” she added.
Pictures of the spiders scattered on the room’s wall went viral on social media after they were tweeted by a user @PrinPeta along with a caption that read, “Gaaaahhhhhhhh, a friend of mine in Sydney just walked into her daughter’s room and found this.”

It did not take long for the post to go viral and be flooded with netizens reacting to the incident. While many were clearly frightened and called it their “worst nightmare” others shared having similar experiences with spiders.
Exactly what my partner would say. For her, this is what nightmares are made of.

This happened to me one night, hundreds of them, so I sprayed the whole area with Mortein and they all died. :-\
Went to bed.
The next morning, all the bodies has disappeared. 😳

Daniel M is indeed Correct.
Huntsman Spiders are the best house guest to have.
They keep your home clear of dangerous bugs.
They’re not harmful to humans & they mind their own business.

I’ve never seen that before. Huntsmans tend to be solitary creatures. I don’t mind spiders but that’s too much! 😧

We had this happen in my parents bedroom on Christmas Day once when I was a kid. It was pretty wild. We must have really pissed odd Santa that year.

We have a huntsman spider that lives in our laundry. His name is Frank and we apologise to him every time we turn the light on.
