US cou­ple finds gi­ant spi­der on their win­dow

Iran Daily - - Infotainme­nt -

Anight­mare-in­duc­ing pho­to­graph that is go­ing vi­ral on so­cial me­dia showed a gi­gan­tic spi­der out­side a home in Texas. Teouna Thomas and her hus­band Ken found the un­wel­come guest out­side their San An­to­nio apart­ment.

“We were hor­ri­fied!” said Ms Thomas to news web­site KKTV.

“We’ve never seen any spi­der this huge in our lives!”

The Thomases wanted to get rid of the spi­der, but were wor­ried about it at­tack­ing their 12-weekold puppy. “I thought the spi­der was go­ing to jump on him and bite him,” Teouna Thomas said. “We didn’t know if it was poi­son or not, so we opened to door and let him in as my hus­band went out.”

Once out­side, Mr Thomas put a con­tainer be­neath the spi­der while his wife banged on the pa­tio win­dow it was hang­ing from. “When he put the con­tainer against the door, I hit the win­dow on the op­po­site side, and it jumped in,” she said.

Ms Thomas also posted a pho­to­graph of the mas­sive arach­nid on Face­book, where it can gone vi­ral with over a thou­sand ‘shares’ and more than 700 hor­ri­fied com­ments.

“Burn that house down to the ground,” wrote one per­son in the com­ments section.

“It’s the 2020 mas­cot if I’m not mis­taken,” an­other joked.

Ac­cord­ing to KSAT News, the San An­to­nio Zoo iden­ti­fied the huge spi­der as a Texas Tan Taran­tula, a species that is com­mon in the US state. The species is one of the largest taran­tu­las found in the United States, and can grow up to six inches.

The Thomases later called their apart­ment com­plex of­fice to pick the spi­der up and find it a new home.

This is not the first time that hor­ri­fy­ing pic­tures of a gi­ant spi­der have gone vi­ral on so­cial me­dia. Last year, an enor­mous hunts­man spi­der was pho­tographed eat­ing a pos­sum in Aus­tralia.
