The man woke up in the middle of the night when the doorbell rings. A huge spider was trying to get into his apartment. The Huntsman spider didn’t give up all night, so the Australian had to turn off the bell.

A resident of the Australian city of Wollongong in New South Wales told about an interesting incident. A giant huntsman spider woke him up in the middle of the night, and didn’t let him sleep all night. The corresponding video appeared on YouTube.

The Australian woke up at two in the morning, as someone rang his doorbell. It turned out that the night visitor was a giant huntsman spider from the Sparassidae family.

With its large paws, the insect reached to the doorbell.

“He woke me up several times. I had to turn off the bell until the morning to get some sleep,” the man complained.

Apparently, the spider was attracted by the infrared light from the camera near the door.

It is noted that the paws of a huntsman spider can reach up to 30 centimetres, but it does not pose a danger to people.
