When my friend from high school told me about spiders in Afghanistan as big as your head, I thought he was exaggerating.
Eeek! That's disgusting. It can't be real!

I suspect that it IS real, but the perspective somehow makes it appear much larger...to my knowledge, those ugly mofos only grow to about (!) six inches or so...but the one in this picture looks more like two feet.

Ew! that's nasty. I hope they some how won't end up here in the US.

O dont worry they will probably crawl into someones sleeping bag then get shipped to the US then probably breed over here then they will latch on to you and bite ur neck and wont let go then you will fall to the ground, having a seizure from its poison it has in it....it will all be fine
