“OMFG, that’s pure evil,” one person wrote.
Others said, ‘I would hate you’ and ‘mate that’s bloody cruel’.
Bro not cool. Look at the size of that thing! Another said.
While there were guesses among international TikTok users whether the creepy creep was actually a spider or a scorpion, Australians were quick to identify the creature.
‘I guarantee all of you it was a hunter they actually run here in Australia,’ the person joked.
Although they look dangerous and intimidating, they are not poisonous and do not pose a serious threat to adults.
“Why don’t you just pick it up, they’re harmless?” A TikTok user said.
