Around 400 fen raft spider – the largest of the nation’s 660 species of spider – have been deliberately set free by zoo keepers in the UK.
The span of these species are over seven centimetres – 2.75 inches.Which is quite big.
To be honest i would be shitt*ng myself if i encounter one of he by my garage or worse.
They live in fens and other wetlands in southern England and Wales and are able to sit on the surface of the water and move across it thanks to their hairy legs.
They enjoy eating small spiders, dragonfly larvae and pond skaters, however they are not averse to catching small vertebrates such as fish and tadpoles.
