Fuck me sideways.

The giant spider is the Goliath bird eating spider (theraphosa blonde) and is the largest (by mass) spider in the world, reaching the weight of 170g and leg span of 30cm. It was observed by Conservation International’s Rapid Assessment Program scientists in Guyana in 2006, where it lives in burrows on the floor of lowland rainforests. Despite the name, it feeds primarily on invertebrates – but has been observed eating small mammals, lizards and even venomous snakes. They have venom fangs, which are not deadly to humans, but their main line of defense are hairs that cover their entire body – when threatened their rub their legs against the abdomen and send a cloud of microscopic barbs that lodge in the skin and mucus membranes of the attacker, causing pain and long-lasting irritation.

It's simply showing the ratio of the spider to the mans hand...the spider is only slightly larger.
