This is the terrifying moment a giant huntsman spider crawls along a door motion sensor.
The view from the security camera shows black and white footage of a man’s front porch at night.
It then becomes an arachnophobe’s worst nightmare when two hairy legs and a large fang appear over the camera.
A massive huntsman spider has shocked an Australian home owner after it triggered the motion sensor on his front door recently
The creepy security footage was posted around midnight on Sunday by Reddit user Wet_Jimmy on r/Australia, with the title ‘Got a motion alert at the front door. Don’t think I’ll answer…’
The huntsman appears to stay on top of the camera for some time by which the house’s occupant was alerted to the situation to see who was at his door.
The video quickly sparked comment about Australian wildlife.
‘I f****g hate spiders. Yesterday I mowed the lawn and about 5 huntsman ran out of the grass up onto the fence. Two of them were the most magnificent white brown and black things I’d ever seen. I couldn’t help but stand there and marvel at their beauty. I f*****g hate spiders though,’ one user commented.

‘Yeah at least our crocs and sharks are based in water’ another user commented.
‘Cut up a fallen gum on my property and when I was backing off the bark from the logs it literally exploded with hundreds of baby huntsman. Needless to say my resident magpies capitalised on the situation,’ another user commented.
‘He’s just waiting for someone to open the door and introduce himself to your face.’
