If This Huge Wolf Spider Doesn’t Scare You, What It’s Carrying Certainly Will.

When two Missouri men came across a wolf spider, it was a scary enough sight for them to drop what they were doing and film the giant arachnid. The 4 inch long spider was walking along the space where they were practicing their craft only moments beforehand.

And no, it wasn’t a couple of cute and cuddly wolf spiders in Baby Bjorns. It was… not pretty, to say the least.
