A HUGE spider stopped a terrified couple leaving their home as it clung to a glass door

THE fearsome arachnid -- nicknamed Aragog -- was snapped by Lauren Ansell in Queensland, Australia.

Laura and her partner could not access their barbecue as the huge huntsman spider was blocking the back door.
 
She said it reacted badly when they tried to move it from the glass on Sunday night.
    
Laura said: “(The spider) was preventing us from using our barbecue.
    
“We made it unhappy as we tried to move it so we could cook.
    
“My boyfriend tried to squish it in the door but the spider was smart.
    
“The door only claimed two of its legs and it dropped and ran into the garden.”
     
The couple haven’t seen the spider since it scuttled away.
    
Laura told Daily Mail Australia: “It’s massive and was mean, but it’s alive and we didn’t want to kill it.”             Daily Star
