Dads surprising reaction after he spotted a huge spider crawling across his sleeping son’s pillow.
Scotty Allen shared the photo in the Perth – Have A Whinge Facebook group, but seemed pleased, rather than concerned by the find, posted Daily Mail.
Mr Allen rationalised his relaxed response by saying: ‘No need to worry about nasty bugs bothering my kids with this big girl watching over them.’
Comments on the post identified the offender as a huntsman – a pretty low-risk, non-aggressive spider.
Experts agree that huntsman spiders are nothing to be afraid of and can provide pest-control, as they eat smaller pesky insects.
According to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, the arachnids are harmless to humans and very useful in controlling mosquito and cockroach numbers.
Ewww not for me!
