A Victorian woman has opened her mailbox to find that hundreds of tiny spiders are warning through her post and are being guarded by a massive mother huntsman.

Natasha Joyce from Bendigo shared a video on Youtube yesterday.

When she opens her mailbox, the camera refocuses a couple of times and then reveals hundreds of baby spiders that are crawling over an egg sac, while a giant huntsman spider stands nearby.

Joyce said the mother spider had been inside her mailbox for a few weeks and she had been monitoring her pregnancy.

“We found this huntsman spider with her newly made egg sac six weeks earlier. Anyway, we were delighted to find today that they were all safely arrived, ready to be eaten by each other and other predators.”


I am never going to Bendigo again.
