Odd spot

A big spi­der trav­elled in style on a busy Mel­bourne train re­cently, claim­ing enough space to stretch out across six seats and may have been eye­ing off an­other two as well. Fel­low com­muters, who un­like the spi­der had ac­tu­ally paid to use the ser­vice, were too scared to sit near the hairy arach­nid and de­cided it was far safer to stand; in fact no one even got close enough to de­ter­mine its ex­act size or species. It is not yet known if the spi­der dis­em­barked from the train or if it has set up more per­ma­nent lodg­ings, opt­ing for a more mo­bile style of liv­ing than its com­rades.
