The photo garnered over 5,000 likes and 1,300 quote retweets. If netizens are terrified, many say how can anyone live with a giant spider crawling on the walls.

“I will never go to Australia. You couldn’t pay me enough money to visit this abandoned land.

“When people ask me why I left Australia…that. That’s why. You don’t know real fear until you wake up at 4am and one of these guys is staring at you from the ceiling,” wrote another.

Family member Jake Gray said in an interview that he had been watching the arachnid grow for over a year. He hopes it will get even bigger in times to come.

Hunter the spiders are common in Australia and much of the southern hemisphere. The good thing is that they are non-aggressive and non-toxic to humans,

However, the Land Down Under has a number of highly venomous spiders, including the Sydney funnel-web spider.

Estimates place the total number of Australian spider species at around 10,000.
