A huge spider and hundreds of its babies have been found nestled on an electricity meter in Queensland, Australia.
Members of online forum Reddit reacted with horror after a user posted a photo of the massive creepy crawly at an unknown location in the Sunshine State, accompanied with the caption: 'Energy Australia was unable to read your meterâ€¦'
The cream and black coloured spider's long legs covered the meter's digital screen, while its babies surround the dials.Â Rentokil Pest Control confirm it's a Wolf Spider, which are venomous with a painful bite but not lethal. Australia enjoys the company of more than 400 sub-species of Wolf Spider.
