Almost sure that this questionable story has been 'doing the rounds' since last year!

I know there are huge spiders around. A tribe in Africa or is it South America eats huge spiders.
Still if he came in the house I would go out the backdoor....lol

A snake on my patio (we live in the country) is enough to send me into the house for the day. Snakes in the basement? Oh...I'd be out of there! YIKES!
Spiders don't bother me too much, except the widows. There are 5 types of widow spiders. Four of those live in Florida!

I think the Orkin man and a snake charmer need to be called.

This was fascinating to watch. Don't you think that the mouse was a lot heavier than the spider and the spider wouldn't have been able to carry something heavier than its own body weight?

http://www.livescience.com/41428-huntsman-spider.html Huntsman spiders in Australia and Asia are some of the biggest Arachnids on the planet. They do not build webs but ambush their prey and kill it with venom. They are interesting little beasties and this story is quite possible
