Man feeds venomous spider on Sugar Puffs
Abuilder found a false widow spider and decided to name it and feed it Sugar Puffs.
Despite being the United Kingdom’s most venomous spider, it didn’t frighten Chris Kelly, who discovered it while renovating a house with two of his colleagues and opted to call it Boris.
He told the Pendle Today: “I was rewiring between the floorboards and as I’m feeding these wires through, I turned around and it was there on the wall.
“I thought, ‘ Bloody
hell, that’s big.’ My two work colleagues didn’t believe me at first. But we’ve had a look at pictures of this spider and I’m absolutely convinced it’s one.”
Rather than kill it or let it crawl away, Chris has been keeping Boris in his lunchbox.
He added: “I said, ‘ Right, you’re going in there,’ and I got it in my butty box. I’ve put some holes in it for air, but just to make sure it doesn’t escape, I’ve taped the lid down.
“To be honest, I don’t know what to do with it. I don’t know what it feeds on. There’s a few scraps of sugar puffs in there and if they drink milk, he’ll be alright.”
