I'd have thrown the towel back on it and set it on fire. Probably would've burned the house down, but at least I wouldn't have to deal with that monstrosity.

wow. That's a Giant Huntsman Spider. nice They're not venomous so no worries - plus they're pretty scared of us (humans) to begin with. In the wild they are supposed to be the largest spider by leg span - up to 1 foot in length.

How did you get it to pose for the camera? I never kill spiders, rather them than shed loads of fly. + I like Spiderman

Placed it on the floor and stood well back, flushed after putting a small bowl over it, gave me the shudders TBH, it should survive in the sewage systems. Never seen anything like that anywhere here before.

You put it in the toilet - ALIVE????? What if it clinged onto the trapway of the toilet when you flushed and it's going to rear, no pun intended, itself back out when you are, uh, on the toilet?
