VIDEO: West Alabama Invaded By Huge Japanese Spiders
I am not a fan.
I don't even like the word.
I know, PLEASE, I know they keep us from being overun by other insect populations.
It doesn't make me any happier when I find one of these at my home in Northport, Alabama.
This beast was just hanging out, looking at me. I think he was big enough for children to ride.
Yesterday, a friend of mine in Tuscaloosa County, posted this encounter with a Joro spider from Japan.

These spiders are found all throughout Japan. Due to it's LARGE size and bright colors, the Joro spider is "well-favored" in Japan.
How does a Japanese spider make it to Tuscaloosa, Alabama?
More on that later.
How about watching the scariest video for those with arachnophobia?
Are you ready for this? It is brutal.

I don't care who you are, that is a disturbing video.
I've heard things about people buying bananas and getting a visit from an arachnid.
In a truly horrific story, a lady purchased some broccoli and found a deadly red back spider in the container.
I would be done at that point.
So, just be aware of these humongous Joro spiders as they are spotted more and more in West Alabama. As a survivor lol, I can tell you they will make you jump back.
