Australian woman finds huge spider in her shower


For most people, a peaceful morning routine is essential for a great start to the day. Maybe it is making your bed first thing, or having some coffee, or maybe you like to take a shower right away.

Well, one Australian woman was about to hop into her shower and discovered she was not alone.

Cathy Cox of Perth found a female huntsman spider hanging out in her shower earlier this month. Like anyone else, she immediately turned to Facebook for help. “I have what I believe to be a beautiful huntsman in my shower,” she posted, according to Daily Mail.

A Facebook user jokingly said it was the size of a basketball.

The leg span of this spider can reach up to almost 6 inches, but their bodies only will get up to 1 inch long. It is one of the largest spiders in Australia

The spider is typically not aggressive or dangerous to humans.
