Fancy A Face Full of Spider? If You Live in Aussie, You Don’t Have a Choice

Whilst you’re sleeping in Aussie, your face could be the arena for two giant bugs fighting to the death…

Write down this name: Michael Tate.

He’s the man responsible for all your new nightmares about Spiders.  Here’s the deal.

Michael Tate is a ranger at the Australian Reptile Park in New South Wales.  Now, NSW is craaawling with rather large bugs because it’s home to Aussie’s rainforest.

So, old mate Michael Tate, goes on Aussie Radio with information that he probably could have just kept his trap shut on, because we didn’t need to know this.  But, he’s said it.  Here it goes. 

If you’re Australian, by the time you're 35-years-old, several huntsman spiders will have walked across your face while you are sleeping.  Tate, obvies comfy AF with spiders, informed the now terrified nation it was "very likely" that Aussies have had a Hunstman battle it out with another bug right on top of their unsuspecting, sleeping selves and those who have "bushy eyebrows” are extra lucky as they make for the ideal hunting ground…

Now… Take a deep breath and pull yourselves together because this is actually a good thing...

The coolest Bug Man in the world and NZs very own Ruud Kleinpaste taught us yeeears ago, that Huntsman and most species of Tarantula won’t bite you so if you’re across the ditch, it’s good to keep one or two as a pet as they’ll eliminate your nasty poisonous bugs.  

Now if only someone would just make a dinosaur onesie  for Huntsman Spiders and maybe upload a video of a huntsman riding a Roomba to make them look cute and cuddly…
