A man was horrified when he flicked down a car’s sun visor to reveal a huge venomous spider.
Shocking footage shows the man flicking down the visor before being confronted with the huntsman spider — which was lurking just inches from his face.
The man was travelling with his dad in New South Wales, Australia when he was confronted the terrifying arachnid.
He told The Sun: “Was traveling home with my father, I had tomato sauce on my face after eating a pie from the service station.
“I went to wipe my mouth and was already leaning forward to look at the mirror then the spider was there.
“It was so close to my face. I then filmed it before it ran away.”
Huntsman spiders – which live all around the world – are known for their enormous size and can grow to a leg span size of 10 to 12 inches.
They often venture into Australian homes in a bid to find prey to eat.
The large and hairy huntsman spiders are, despite their appearance, not considered dangerous.
They are venomous and can cause pain with their bites, but experts say they are reluctant to attack and would rather scamper away when feeling threatened.
In 2017, a family were horrified to discover a massive Hunstsman hitched a ride in their luggage all the way from from Australia.
It was found in a shipping container full of the family’s belongings.
The giant 18cm arachnid had hitched a ride from Brisbane to Merstham in Redhill, Surrey – a journey of around 10,000 miles – and was found among cases at a removals company.
