Giant Spider Traps Couple in Their Home After Deciding to Perch on Door
A couple from Mount Coolum, Australia just wanted to cook dinner Sunday night until their simple plan was interrupted by a gigantic huntsman spider that had decided to hang out on their door. They named the oversized arachnid “Aragog”.
“We live at Mount Coolum, pretty much underneath the big rock,” Lauren Ansell told Sunshine Coast Daily. “[The spider] was preventing us from using our BBQ. We made it unhappy as we tried to move it so we could cook,” she added.
In an attempt to get rid of the humongous spider Lauren’s boyfriend tried to squish but to no avail.
“My boyfriend tried to squish it in the door but the spider was smart.” Instead of crushing the spider, Lauren’s boyfriend just gave it a reason to be angrier.
“The door only claimed two of its legs and it dropped and ran into the garden,” Lauren said.
Because of the entire incident, particularly the giant spider running towards the garden, the couple decided to call the arachnid, Aragog, the name of the giant spider character in the Harry Potter series.
“We nicknamed the spider ‘Aragog’ from Harry Potter and feel the spider has run into the forbidden forest,” Lauren shared.
In an interview with the Daily Mail Australia Lauren shared: “It’s in the garden and we haven’t seen it since. It’s massive and was mean but it’s alive and we didn’t want to kill it.”
Based on the photos posted by the couple on their social media pages it was clear that it was a huntsman spider who visited them last weekend.
Huntsman spiders also called giant crab spiders because of their size and appearance, are common in Australia, which means that Lauren’s family will most likely be visited by other “Aragogs” in the future.
After sharing the pictures of the massive spider, most of Lauren’s friends expressed their shock while others gave advice that they should move soon.
