A woman was creeped out when a huge spider showed itself from the dark and appeared on the windscreen while she was driving.

Nathan Jennings, from Melbourne in Australia, has had the shock of his life when a huntsman spider appeared right in front of his girlfriend, Millie, who was steering behind the wheels.

In Nathan's video, the creepy-crawly, which is one of the largest species of spiders on Earth, made its appearance during their short ride to a nearby chicken shop.

It lurks in the top corner of the windscreen on the driver’s side and when Nathan zooms in, its jaws can be seen catching the light.

"Don't," warns Millie. "It will jump at you Nathan."

Nathan, 24, said: "We actually noticed a spider in the car a few months before this happened, but could never find where it went.

"So, this spider has been living in this car. It finally made its way to the front seat at the worst time."

Thankfully the spider did not drop on to Millie or any of her passengers, it just crawled up and down the windscreen.

"The drive to the chicken shop was only about six minutes," he added. "I jumped out of the car as soon as we parked and kept my distance.

"My friend, Keith, had to remove the spider.

"Honestly, spiders in Australia are pretty common but I haven't seen one that big and that close just lurking in our car!"

Huntsman spiders are found across the breadth of Australia.

And though they are venomous, packing a bite that can be painful to humans, they are generally not considered dangerous.
