Turn's out, Shelob's son just moved into my apartment building...

I'm sure this guy doesn't look too big to readers in the parts of the world where humongous spiders are commonplace, but this is a scary bugger for a person in the UK! Massive by our standards! Seen on a post-midnight trip out to the communal bins...

  1. At least with a spider that big you can fist fight him if necessary. I wouldn't recommend it!

  2. Holy cow, that looks like the monster I came home one day to find pulling the tuper ware box my wife had put over it across the living room floor!

    I'm impressed you stopped to measure and photograph the beast.

  3. Its that time of year where it starts to get cooler and they all head indoors. One this size whizzed across my living room floor the other night even the dog got up and shifted lol

  4. Nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

  5. Supposedly thanks to our series of wet summers flies are breeding like mad, so spiders have a lot to eat, hence the buggers getting bigger.
