The Jellyfish would actually be more believable.

I was traveling to Australia to move some servers from one data center to another. I had the luxury of working with a transexual female during this time. While we were moving these monstrous servers from one site to another (myself in polo shirt/kahkis whilst she was in corset, leather pants and combat boots) I had to stay late at night to get some of the systems online.  While I was outside arguing with my cell phone provider about the data overages that were popping up on my account I saw a spider that came right out of Arachnophobia traversing up the wall and vanishing into the awnings of the building.  This is of course directly over where I must badge in to securely entire the facility.

 As anyone who watched Arachnophobia while young I developed an irrational fear of spiders and wish death upon those 8 legged monstrosities wherever I go.  This T-Rex size spider was straight up nightmare fuel and while I was howling banshee-like conversation occurred with my cell phone provider:

Cell Phone Provider:  What did it look like?  <Australian accent>
CPP: Have nothing to worry about Sir, that spider is not interested in you.
Me: Unholy ghosts what do you mean? That loathsome creation of Beezelbub  is waiting up there for her next meal!
CPP: Sir, that's a trapper spider
Me: FAN-F'N-TASTIC it lays traps! I'm being hunted! <panic increases>
CPP: No Sir, it doesn't go after humans, you are too big for it's web.
Me:  Then what does this foul abomination of death prey on???
CPP: Mostly Birds Sir.

I left the site for a good solid hour, found a store at 1 AM that sold a bottle of whatever the Aussie's called RAID down there and brought it back with me. I emptied the can up and around the area that Charlotte's Evil Twin was last scene, all around the door, the hand scanner, and anything that resembled webbing or moved. Never found it, the Data Center people thought I was insane when I told them the story like it was nothing unusual.
