There’s a giant house spider lurking in our bathroom…

Walnut Orb Weaver Spider

Mystery spider…

This terrifying beast creeps around our house at night. She’s hairy and enormous. She lives behind the bath, terrorising our small children and eating cats. Yes, whole cats. She also ate her husband. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid…

I believe this spider is a female Walnut Orb Weaver. The oak leaf pattern on her back is common to Walnut Orb Weavers, but they come in lots of different shades and colourings so I’m guessing the species rather than speaking with knowledge. Like most people I’m not a huge fan of spiders!
