Video: Monstrous Spider Menaces Australian Couple

A couple in Australia found their dinner delayed when an unexpected guest arrived at their home: a massive Huntsman spider.

The enormous arachnid said to be the size of a dinner plate suddenly appeared on a glass patio door as Lauren Ansell's partner was outside cooking.

Opting not to kill the creature but finding themselves stuck with a giant spider between them, the bewildered pair decided to simply nudge it along in the hopes of getting it to leave, which it eventually did, despite not appearing to be too thrilled at their actions.

And that may actually be the scariest part of the story as the frightening creature is apparently still lurking in the couple's garden, perhaps waiting for the next time it can stop by unannounced like an eight-legged nosy neighbor.
