Nora Serrat, 32, was terrified after coming back to London from a two-week charity trip to the Cameroonian rainforest,and a huge venomous huntsman spider jumped out of her backpack .The spider with a huge egg sac – containing up to 400 babies is known to prey on scorpions and even bats,and was described by a member of the charity, the Rainforest Foundation UK, as ‘feisty’.

According to the Evening Standard, Ms Serrat discovered the spider when she was unpacking from the trip.
The charity worker said she believes the spider crawled into her sleeping mat in the rainforest.She told the paper:

‘It's not an impossible thing to happen considering the places we visited - but it was still a bit of a surprise.’
Ms Serrat, who specialises in mapping and forest governance for the charity, said colleagues caught the huntsman in a carton box after discovering it. Photo of the spider after the cut...
