Wolf Spider Fail!

Wolf Spider Fail!

Spoiler alert: if you have arachnophobia you may not want to continue reading! A man in Australia spotted a wolf spider on his kitchen floor and did what many of us would do: grabbed a broom and attempted to squash and kill the spider.

However, this man was in for the shock of his life when he hit the spider and hundreds of baby spiders were released. What caused this? The wolf spider was pregnant, and the impact of the broom caused the baby spiders to release.

The man then frantically uses the broom to contain (and squash!) as many of these tiny eight-legged creatures as possible.

Watch all the gory details on Fox Now 6.

Have you ever encountered a situation like this? Think twice before squashing a spider—they may be expecting!
