Ok so Australians are no strangers to terrifying indigenous life, but this not so little arachnid must surely rank as one of the scariest things to come from down under.

‘Hermie the Huntsman’ as it’s so affectionately been named was caught on camera by Jason Womal from Coppabella, Queensland.

“So I am just about to leave for work about 0030 and me neighbour says ‘You want to see something cool’ and I say ‘Hell yeah’,” Womal wrote on his Facebook page.

“So we proceed to his place and he shows me this. Huntsman trying to eat a mouse.”
