It’s the kind of things nightmares are made of, amirite?
A horrifying clip has emerged of a man reaching for what looks like said furball that had gathered in the corner of a wall.
However, when the man, believed to be in Texas, picks up the ‘furball’, it quickly disintegrates in his hands, as hundreds of daddy long legs spiders crawl away.
While they look very similar to spiders on the outside, they’re quite different creatures.
Daddy long legs are closer relations of scorpions and unlike spiders, they don’t produce venom to kill their prey.
Understandably, viewers were horrified by the clip, which left many people feeling like their skin was crawling.
Although it hasn’t been proven, scientists believe that harvestmen cluster together in a bid to make themselves look bigger to put off predators, which is quite unfortunate when you think it actually makes them look less scary to humans from a distance. It’s also been suggested they could be using it as a method of keeping warm.
While finding the cluster of daddy long legs would no doubt be a terrifying experience for most people, one woman one-upped the fella in Texas, when she found a giant Huntsman spider in her house.
The poor unsuspecting woman, Laree Clarke, returned home yesterday (July 30) to find the huge creepy crawly just chilling on her property in Australia.
Laree desperately took to Facebook where she begged the people of Bluewater News group to help if they could remove the spider, which she described as the same size as her hand.
She later edited the post to update everyone that the spider had been ‘safely removed’ – although the details of this removal are not known.
Has anyone else got the heebiejeebies now?
