How big was the biggest spider you've ever seen?

Youngling_Hunt

Tarantula. Size of my hand. It was very friendly

I saw a couple of Huntsmen, some at least as big as my spread hands. They are cool, I like to pet them.


catsinbananahats

Are you an aussie or something


gozba

A wannabe-Aussie. I spend some serious time there.


CryptographerTall968

it was about the size of a standard plate crawling on our internet router we had to call professionals to remove it

Goliath birdeater. Fucking massive. Sort of just chilled there though, didn't do much.

SunnyvaleShithawk

I'm a Yank, it was at a zoo in a terrarium. And Goliath birdeaters are native to South America.

I think I saw one of those in the kitchen at work. I think it came in the banana box I thought it was a rat it was so huge I think it was 8 inches long. Luckily, I had a coworker that wasn't afraid of spiders. She grabbed a little cup and I said no your going to need a big bowl. She thought I was joking until she came back and she said it was almost too big for her.

The size of my hand when I spread my fingers, on a bamboo behind my house when I was a kid.


SeriousLee3

A daddy long legs about the width of an orange. It was on a tree branch in my backyard.


FuzzyOwlFeet

Nebraska, USA. Saw the biggest spider I'd ever seen sitting on it's web it had made over a creek. Was roughly the size of my foot. I have never been back to that creek. Don't want anywhere near that thing.


Govsin

Like mi hand, was disgusting


poppypodlatex

I once had a Chilean rose tarantula, everyone's starter spider, that grew to a decent size. I've also seen a few decent sized house spiders but in the uk they dont really get massive anyway.


Galloping_Scallop

Huntsman - size of my hand. Spider bro just relaxed in the corner of the ceiling most of the time. Could hear the pitter patter of him running around at night chasing cockroaches etc. Best pest management control I ever had. Miss you Bill!


Postmodernfinn

Gigantic Banana Spider bigger than my palm


DeliciousBreastMilk

Found a gigantic drowning spider in my half full bathtub. Did you know spiders turn upside and curl their legs when they're at risk of drowning? They float and don't die. Disgusting.


catsinbananahats

I thought curling up was just a spider's way of saying "I'm dead"


DeliciousBreastMilk

I guess after you whack it with a newspaper. Maybe I saved it.

I-drink-apple-juice

Size of my pp


SweetPotatoGuy34

I guess it would have been at least a couple of litres, lots of lime soft drink and a couple of scoops of ice cream. Massive spider it was.
