Giant Wolf Spider Sets Grown Men on Edge but What Was on Its Back Had Them Screaming

"About the size of a Gatorade cap."

The sight of a large spider would probably give most people at least a little case of the heebie-jeebies, but what a man filmed crawling all over such a spider's back was enough to send him and his friend screaming.

The Facebook user going by Bobby Brown posted a video last week, which he then uploaded to YouTube this week, showing a wolf spider walking along. As it got closer, the men saw that its back was full of squirming baby spiders.

"Dude, look at the babies on its back," one of the men said.

As the spider continued closer toward them, the videographer said, "Dude, f*** that" and cut out.

Watch the footage (Content warning: strong language):

The video has been viewed more than 8 million times since being posted on Facebook Oct. 18.

In his description of the video, Brown described the "little lady" as being about 4 inches in diameter with her body being "about the size of a Gatorade cap with all of the babies on her."

According to the Missouri Department of Conservation, wolf spiders don't spin webs, which is why the hatched babies are taking a ride on mom's back in this video. When they're still eggs, the sack is attached to the bottom of her abdomen.

While it might look intimidating, the state department said a wolf spider bite is relatively harmless to humans.
