Massive trapdoor spider plays tug of war with Sydney man

So, who’s up for a harmless little game of tug-of-war with a trapdoor spider? Some fearless Aussie captured his spider adventures on film and uploaded it to the internet so we can all have nightmares for as long as we’re able to. Start from the beginning to see the man lure the spider out of its burrow with a stick, or go with the action that starts at 0:20. Wherever you decide to start watching this video, chances are you’ll regret it a billion times over.

By the way, trapdoor spiders live between 5 and 20 years. Is that enough to make you feel slightly sick? They’re also all around Australia. So if anyone ever calls me a sissy, I’ll show them this video and let them know just what was lurking outside when I was a kid. Nerves of steel, people, we have nerves of steel!
