Real life facehugger discovered

Or rather tarantula the size of a human face discovered. So I bet it could hug your face if it really wanted to hug your face.

Its legs, which have unique daffodil-yellow markings, span a massive 20cm (eight inches). The arachnid also has a distinctive pink band around its body.

The new species was found in the war-torn north of the South Asian country by scientists from Sri Lanka's Biodiversity Education and Research (BER) organisation.


Not gonna lie. I would love to have one of those as a pet. Imagine that huge spider sitting next to you with all those cute eyes. And you could pet it, cuddle with it, play ball with it and yeah. It could hug your face.
