Here at Mpora, we see our fair share of nasty animals from around the world. There are bears destroying garages, lizards that get all frisky around the dead, and a whole host of other critters that are just itching to fuck you up.
The humble money spider, however… Kind of harmless, right? Not for this fella.
He found himself with a blocked ear after going swimming in a lake in Missouri, USA. Unable to dislodge what ever was stuck in his ear, he tried to examine his ear canal by filming it with his phone.
What he found was truly horrifying. Can you imagine finding a living creature climbing around in your skull? And the way the light catches the spiders eyes makes the little shit look even more horrifying.
We must admit, we do somewhat question quite how genuine this video is. If that spider is real, it certainly has an exceptional sense of timing. It’s a natural on camera. That or some After Effects wizardry.
Worryingly, even if this is fake, doctors confirm that cranial squatting by spiders is all too common, and not just in people that go swimming in lakes. It’s believed that, at some point in their life, 1 in 8 people will have a spider make a bodily orifice a temporary home while they’re sleeping.
As such, mathematically speaking, if you know seven people who this hasn’t happened to, chances are, you’ve got a spider in your head right now!
