This video will remind you to check your shoes before putting them on today!
In Australia, the practice of leaving your shoes outside out of politeness for the homeowner is just asking for trouble.
When his son left his shoes outside, YouTube user Moderate Hyperbole posted this video of the creature that made a home in his son’s shoes. According to Yahoo News it is a funnel web spider – one of Australia’s deadliest spiders.
Proving that you really need to check your shoes before you put your toes anywhere near them, the highly poisonous arachnid had easily constructed his funnel shaped web in the shoe.
The video shows a dose of fly spray and a stick helped draw the unwelcome guest from the shoe. It is extremely lucky the spider was found before the shoe was worn – a bite from a funnel web can be extremely serious if not treated immediately.
