Even the fiercest of cheeseburger-loving carnivores can admit that most salads -- Cobb, Caesar, etc. -- can be both nutritious and also delicious. That is, unless your salad starts to crawl.
In fact, an admittedly "arachnophobic family" from Sydney, Australia will probably never look at salads the same way after they discovered a live Huntsman spider inside their recently-purchased bag of "Italian style salad" mix, as reported by The Guardian. Zoe Perry recently posted a video on Woolworths Supermarket's Facebook page, showing the sizable, eight-legged critter crawling inside the bag, and well, it'll make you want to rinse your next salad with a freaking blow torch.
Obviously, the above and below videos are not suitable for those who are petrified of spiders.
