Just in time for Halloween, frightening footage has emerged on TikTok of a ‘world record’ spider.
And beware, this video is not for the faint-hearted.
Video, which you can see in the video player below, shows the ‘dog-sized’ spider on the wall of a home in Tobago, an island within the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
However, although the spider looks like something out of a spooky Halloween display, the huge arachnid is in fact real and can be seen crawling around the TikTok user’s home.
“You have to go back out of the window, or you’ll be trapped inside again,” a woman can be heard saying in the background of the video.

The video has already raced to over a million likes and is flooded with comments from freaked out TikTok users.
“I thought it was a Halloween decoration till it moved,” one person said.
“I’ve seen this spider before it’s called burntheentirehouseonfire,” another added.
The general consensus in the comments was that the house ‘belongs to that spider’ now.
“That’s an eviction notice if I’ve ever seen one,” said one TikToker.
“How y’all become guests in your own house, that’s the spiders house now,” said another.
It’s not known for sure what species the giant spider is, however one TikToker suggested it was a Psalmopoeus cambridgei, the Trinidad chevron tarantula.
“It’s very common to come out of rainy season,” the user wrote.
“And yes it gets larger than that.”
