The chilling snapshot shows a mammoth huntsman crawling over a broom on an animal rescue farm in Queensland’s Brisbane Valley.
Dubbed Charlotte by the animal rescuer who moved it from harm’s way, the colossal creepy crawly will look like a waking nightmare to anyone with a fear of spiders.
The snapshots were taken in October last year, but resurfaced on social media this week, where they're spreading like wildfire.
Some commenters begged the question why anyone would get up close and personal with an arachnid of such formidable stature.
‘Why In HOLY HELL would you touch this horrible f*****g demon spawn!?!’ wrote one commenter.
‘100% approve of and respect what you're doing here, but please, for the love of God keep that thing and all of its family and friends OVER THERE and the heck away from me,’ wrote another.
Others marvelled at the arachnid’s hulking frame, suggesting it was rare for them to grow that large.
‘That's is as big as she will get...it's actually not at all normal for huntsman to get this big.’
