A shocked Queenslander has found a hunter spider of monstrous proportions swarming into his kitchen – even dwarfing his kitchen appliances.
On Tuesday, Samantha Moore was flipping off a light switch in her Mackay home when she suddenly saw something massive move behind her WiFi box.
‘I popped my head around the corner and behold! This gigantic spider that would have easily been the size of my head,” she told Daily Mail Australia.

The arachnid appears to be comfortably the size of a human hand or even a dinner plate.
A photo of the hunter next to Ms Moore’s internet router shows his shocking size.
The WiFi box is 21 centimeters high and 13 cm wide – the Mackay resident saying that at one point the creature was sitting on it and its legs easily cradled over the edge.
“The spider was terribly scary,” she said. “Most of the time we get big ones, but nothing like that.”
“This is by far the biggest spider I’ve seen.”

The extremely brave Ms Moore said he emptied a large cookie jar she had on her desk and trapped the huge arachnid.
‘Once I caught it it froze which made the process much easier for me already scared,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
It’s not the first time a Queenslander has found a massive spider in their home after Lauren Ansell of Mount Coolum in Queensland posted a photo of a monster hunter spider nicknamed ‘Aragog’ that appeared in the outside the window.
Ms Ansell said the spider seemed harmless, but didn’t take kindly to it after the pair tried to pull it out of the glass.

“My partner was outside trying to cook our food. We didn’t want to kill him, but he didn’t like us trying to get him going,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘He is still alive and happy. I nicknamed him Aragog.
Ms Ansell said that once she posted the photo of the spider on her Facebook, her friends could not believe what was pictured.
“It’s in the garden and we haven’t seen it since,” she said. “It’s huge and it was mean, but it’s alive and we didn’t want to kill it.”
