Huge Huntsman Spider Found in Backpack of Woman

Huge Huntsman spider found in backpack of woman who returned from Cameroon jungle

A GIANT venomous spider gave a woman the fright of their life when it crawled out of her backpack after she returned home to the UK from an African jungle.

Eco-worker Nora Serrat, 32, had been working out in part of Cameroon's rainforest.
However her return to work on Thursday gave colleagues a bit of shock.

A three centimetre Huntsman spider, named after its hunting style, scurried out of her backpack at the Rainforest Foundation's offices in Kentish Town, north London.

The creepy crawly was said to be holding an egg sac which contained up to 400 babies.

While most workers stood stunned to see a spider that big, others stepped in to capture the jungle insect.

Rachel Agnew, of the Rainforest Foundation, told ITV News: "Our office manager, Mateusz Wilkosz, responsible for health and safety, heroically took control and safely contained the spider in a large plastic box – making sure she came to no harm - and then hand delivered ‘Hermione’ and her eggs to London Zoo that afternoon."

"When we dropped her off, she was alive and apparently quite feisty."
Said Rachel Agnew, of the Rainforest Foundation
After the initial fright, workers said they became quite attached to 'Hermione'.

Ms Agnew said that they looked out for the her to make sure she was not harmed as she was taken to the ZSL.
She added: "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.

"From our perspective we were delighted that ZSL responded so quickly and said they would take care of the spider."

The Huntsman spiders are known to feed on other insects, scorpions and even bats.
They are seen as house spiders to a lot of homeowners in hotter countries because of their pest control strengths and are said to be timid around humans.

The Rainforest Foundation actively works with indigenous groups of people in Central African forests and the Amazonian to help protect their habitats.

Ms Agnew added that the organisation aims to protect "all the wonderful species that call the rainforest home".

Re: Huge Huntsman Spider Found in Backpack of Woman

I am not a fan of spiders. Been bitten more than once and have had to be hospitalized every darn time.

But I love that people did not try and kill it.

Very pretty little thing that has been quite busy, carrying around all those babies! What a pregnancy!

Great post, sweetie!

All spiders are venomous. Unless it's trying to harm you and/or you're in immediate danger, why kill it?
