It could be worse .. you could be chased by the dreaded "Giant Snoopy Spider" ...

I'm going to have to get one of these for next year.

I dunno, I've seen foot long stick insects in your neck the woods... they're harmless even when not made of plastic:D

I loled a lot about this video, totally epic fail as he describes every detail of his spider capture and then the whole story ends in crying and fleeing!

largest insect on earth IS a stick insect to be found in Borneo, it's half a metre long! [50cm = 19.6 inches!]

That's definitely a Queensland accent too... but by far the most scary but not of the deadly variety is the St Andrew's Cross. They spin a big cross at the center of their web and sit in the middle pretending to be really big except they can get really big and spin a web more than 6m across.

If you can imagine a long country driveway at night with cyprus trees either side about 6m apart... riding a motorcycle with no shirt or helmet. Smack in my face and the body of it was like a ping pong ball....uuuurgh!

@meshpig: that happened to you? I guess if it were me, for mere terror I'd just desintegrate into nothingness in that same moment .

To think that spiders are so useful, they kill so many other annoying insects like flies and musquitos. I still don't want them as pet in the house :(.

Indeed it did, luckily it was dark and they spin these huge webs so it was more web than spider ... which had burst on impact. The truly terrifying bit was the next day when I saw what I had actually collided with... an overfed version of this :)

I like huntsmen spiders, they keep the flies away, and are basically harmless. But they look scary... On the topic of stick insects, saw this one a month or two ago, right in the middle of Sydney (Enmore)

You're joking... ( they say Funnel Webs too don't live on this side of town either).
- I've noticed in the past few years and never seen it before. Swarms of bush cockroaches, like 20 or more just invade in the evening and go completely mental. Fly spray is the only defence but makes you wonder what's going on in insect land?

The largest Huntsman I have seen was almost as large as my hand stretched out. They are very quick, catching them on the end of a broom is the best way. Then put them outside.

The Sydney Funnel Web spider, now they are very dangerous. They jump at you. I dug up about 30 or them while digging holes for foundations may years ago. The largest one was about 70mm across.

Yeah it's the Male spiddly diddly funnel bubble you have to watch out for; I hope you asked them all politely to move on?

We don't really have accents as such here but you can hear a "Queensland accent", so to speak with Mr. Croc Hunter Steve Irwin

- I mean in the US a "Southern accent" means something because at one point the nation was divided in civil war. I don't mean it as derogatory just that you can pick where people come from by the way they speak.

That was hilarious. How maany times I've hesitated the same way before the final capture movement.
Mine are never that scary of course but my daughters make the same noises (squealing in fear and then laughter at me).

I think most already have one of these?

The owner of the video has a knack of being in the right place at the right time.. There's Ghosts, UFO's, Helecopter car chases. You name it.
