My mother had one of those in her room on vacation. Hotel staff were afraid to tell her about it because most tourists would act like the reporter of the linked story. Meanwhile all I see are tiny little spiders who can barely hurt a fly.

Geez, they weren't kidding.  That thing is pretty big.

Yes, but was she PREGNANT?

It's IMPORTANT.

I would have given her a refreshing can of Brakleen, personally.

Poor little spider looks terrified.

Huntsmen can grow to huge sizes and have been known to bite defensively but they are not dangerous to humans.

Grow up, arachnophobes. It's just a little bug. If you're actually phobic, recognize that this is YOUR failing, and don't indulge it.
 
2014-03-17 12:42:38 PM  
Better to kill it while it's still pregnant than to have thousands of babies already hatched in your luggage.

"venomous huntsman spider "

That's all spiders champ.

"And to add to the terror, the venomous huntsman spider..."

Well, hell. It sounds like this thing is the worst thing ever. I mean, that's pretty damning stuff going on in that sentence.

"Huntsmen can grow to huge sizes and have been known to bite defensively but they are not dangerous to humans."

For fark's sake. Sensationalist bullshiat.

I commend her for resisting the urge to kill it with fire.

I would try very hard to do so, but I don't know if I would ultimately be successful.

At least they mentioned the non-dangerous part after hyping-up the story at the beginning.

/Fully confess I would freak out if I saw one in my luggage.

I'm disappointed in the lack of "nope" .gifs thus far. Apparently, and the arachnophobes are sleeping in today, giving spiders the opportunity to nest in their ear canals.
 
2014-03-17 12:47:13 PM  
I would love to say I would kill it with fire, but in reality I would run away like a biatch shiatting myself and telling my girlfriend to get rid of it. I'm a realist.
 
2014-03-17 12:47:18 PM  
She's so cute and loveable, I just want take her home and bugger her.

Don't Aussies like this spider since it kills much more deadly things?

How Fox news would tell this story- "Pregnant African sneaks into country- Immediately provided wih free room and board."

I often do the "what would happen if I ran into any of these critters from D&D" kinda thing in my head.

dm: you see a giant spider (dog to horse sized)
player: I attack!

real life
player: I shiat myself into dehydration and fall into a coma before it can even move.

Um. The spider actually called the 'giant huntsman' is from Laos. Which is nowhere near Cameroon. I'm calling shenanigans.

The flip flop that I use for spider slaying would disagree with that last part.

/ I only kill the really big ones or the ones who happen to crawl out when chicks are over.

What's worse than one HUMONGOUS, VENOMOUS Huntsman spider crawling out of your suitcase?  One HUMONGOUS, VENOMOUS Huntsman spider with an egg sac full of SOON TO BECOME HUMONGOUS, VENOMOUS & VORACIOUS Huntsman spider babies crawling out of your suitcase, that's what.

That's like what's worse than biting into an apple and finding a worm?  Biting into an apple and finding half a worm.

Colleague Rachel Agnew added to the Evening Standard: "When we dropped her off, she was alive and apparently quite feisty.
"They gave her some water and her rather unexpected journey had apparently caused her no harm."



Isn't there some danger in releasing them into a foreign eco-system?

it is only due to a recent increase in banana spiders that I came to believe my neighbor is not, in fact, a serial killer ala Jeffrey Dahmer

It's not really a good thing for a spider to be "apparently quite feisty."
