The Sound That This Tarantula Makes Is Disgustingly Scary

My personal reaction to finding a jar that’s holding a Goliath birdeater spider would to keep that jar closed forever, or maybe throw it into a well.

But tarantulaguy1976 and his wife seem to treat their tarantulas like their own children. Watch his wife interact with their pet Goliath birdeater, affectionately named Zilla. It’s exactly the opposite of how any sane person would act around this kind of spider.

That sound Zilla makes while coming out of her jar will probably haunt me for the rest of my life. It sounds like she’s shaking maracas of doom. According to the YouTube comments, “tarantulas [can] make noise when they move because their pedipalps and fangs are rubbing together.”

…or they just want you to have nightmares for the rest of your life.

One Spider Didn’t Take Too Kindly To This Guy’s Attempts To Capture It

When your house becomes infested with massive spiders, the best course of action is to call a reputable exterminator. The absolute last thing you should try to do is catch them.

That’s a fact of life that YouTuber leokimvideo learned when he tried to catch the giant huntsman spider that wandered into his home during mating season.

All of the nope!

I think I’d just burn my house down and start over. Australia, you never cease to shock and amaze me with your unrivaled creepiness.

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.

Just as they calmed down from the initial discovery, the two men were sent reeling once again. Upon closer inspection of the spider, they discovered a pile of babies writhing on the spider’s back. And no, it wasn’t a couple of cute and cuddly wolf spiders in Baby Bjorns. It was… not pretty, to say the least.

(WARNING: some NSFW language.)

One wolf spider is bad enough…but an entire horrifying family? No, thanks.

This Is A PSA: Don’t Ever Put Your Hand This Close To A Whip Spider

Have you ever seen a whip spider up close? Me neither, and I don’t particularly want to.

Well, not everyone is so skittish around creepy-crawlies. There are some folks who see something creepy and rather than run away…go full speed ahead to check it out.

I only have two things to say to the person in the video below: I would highly recommend that they rethink their approach to such creatures. I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to put your fingers that close to anything with claws…

That’s terrifying.

While whip spiders can’t sting and rarely bite humans, this video still gives me anxiety. Every itch I have from now on, I’m going to think it’s a whip spider climbing up my body.
