This Viral Video Of A Huge Spider Eating A Mouse Alive Is Pure Nightmare Fuel

An Australian man named Jason Womal has captured my nightmares on film. The 20-second video of a large mouse getting eaten alive by a gnarly Huntsman spider as it scales a mini-fridge has been viewed more than 2.6 million times and has amassed over 50,000 likes on Facebook.

Huntsman spiders typically feast on cockroaches and crickets by using their venom to immobilize prey and to assist in digestion. The thing has eight eyes and eight legs and is slightly furry. The spider climbs up the fridge to take on its lanky rock dwelling opponent, and ends up becoming the largest meal the spider’s gotten in years.

Now that we’re on the subject, lets all check out these huge ass tarantulas eating the shit out of mice!!

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
