Fortunately, a woman escaped unharmed after coming face to face with the world's deadliest spider.
Tami Mills talked about the terrifying moment when she discovered a funnel web spider earlier this week under her bed in her Cabarlah house in the Toowoomba region of Queensland.
Mills Mills, who joked that she could be awake & dead, said she found the poisonous spider of 6 cm – so poisonous that he can kill a person in just 15 minutes – while cleaning her bedroom used to be.

Speaking of the moment she met the poisonous, eight-legged creature, Ms. Mills said, "I could not go under the [the bed]So I grabbed a stick and pulled things out and I thought there was a spider – probably a hunter.
& # 39; But when I saw it in the light, I thought oh no – that's a bit blacker & # 39 ;, she told The Courier Mail.
Granted that she sometimes leaves her bedroom door ajar, Mrs. Mills said that the spider had the opportunity to crawl in from the outside.

What is a funnel web spider?
Funnel webs are the most dangerous of all spiders
Although their bites are fatal to humas, the poison is harmless to dogs, cats, adult mice and guinea pigs.
Funnel webs vary from small to large, but most are medium-sized spiders
They see two small finger-like spinnerets at the end of the body
They are more often seen after a hot summer season
Funnel webs can be found in the eastern coastal area of Australia, including Tasmania, around Adelaide and the Eyre peninsula
Trechtwebs are often hidden at the foot of bushes and trees

Mills Mills, who identified the spider through a web search, added that when she realized how deadly the spider was, she realized how happy she was that she had not been bitten.
& # 39; Because my bedspread fell to the floor, I realized that he could have crawled into my bed and that I could roll on it and be bitten, & # 39; Ms. Mills told the publication.
Mills Mills shared a photo of the spider on Tuesday, next to a ruler to indicate the seriousness of the size, on her personal Facebook page.
In addition to the shocking image, she wrote:
& # 39; Could have died this morning, lol. Cleaning under my bed to find a very fresh dead 6 cm Toowoomba funnel web spider. & # 39;
She added: "Everyone knows how to keep or frame this handsome copy? & # 39;
While some of her shocked friends told her to kill & # 39; and noticed that the spider is so scary & # 39; Ms. Mills said she was planning to reserve the deadly creature.
& # 39; He is waiting in the fridge to be kept in resin, & # 39; Ms. Mills wrote on the post.
