If spiders give you the willies, the huntsman spider is bound to be your least favorite of your least favorites. The spiders can get huge. It can have a leg span of five inches, and a giant huntsman can have a leg span of up to 12 inches.
If that's not enough to make your skin crawl, 23-year-old Australian Jake Giannino filmed a huntsman molting in his backyard on December 13. Giannino, a biologist accord to Perth Now, told the publication it took the badge huntsman more than six minutes to fully shed its skin.
"I have kept loads of huntsman spiders but I have never been lucky enough to capture that before," Giannino told Perth Now. "It's a once in a lifetime experience to see this, especially during the day. Normally, you would have to wait up all night to try and witness it."
