The creature is actually called The Goliath bird eater spider. The worlds biggest type of spider according to the Guinness Book Of World Records. This huge spider can weigh up to 6 ounces. This is so creepy considering that these creatures actually are real. The body itself is fists sized with about 2 inch fangs with a leg span about the size of a kids arm. if this isn’t scary enough i don’t know what is lol. When it rubs its legs together it can fire out tiny barbs as a defense mechanism.

So urbanites would you guys wanna be up close and personal with these giant spiders? Sound off below in the comment section
