Here’s a picture of me and a Giant Golden Orb spider. That’s as close as I could get without getting my hair caught in the web. I tried to get the shot so that you could see the size comparison with my face…which is pretty much equal. This picture was taken pre-huntsman spider bite so there’s a bit of ignorant bliss going on in the photo. Although the orb spiders can’t kill you, I’ve heard they do have a pretty good bite, like the huntsman. And I only need to feel that once.
But honestly, arachnophobia aside, aren’t they gorgeous?
