It’s like a terrifying scene straight out of a Harry Potter movie, except this time, it’s real.
Photos of a monster huntsman spider in Queensland are going viral on social media.
The spider, known as Charlotte, has been living at an animal rescue farm in Queensland.
The picture, which would be an arachnophobe’s worst nightmare, was taken in October last year and has remerged on Facebook.
Charlotte was described as a ‘beautiful, calm spider’ and ‘not aggressive in any way.’
‘Like most spiders she just wanted to go about her business eating bugs and living in peace,’ the rescue organisation wrote on Facebook.
