Well my saving of a Whistling Spider went viral over the weekend! Just walking home from checking out the Herbert River in full flood when I came across this girl trying to get on higher ground. We moved her to a tree to be free.
Cannot believe how much it has gone all around the world...
I saw the video on iToday fb page as well as nstagram this morning / Go you!
And did I see your name come up in in the top left of screen on the ch9 news tonight? Was a story on the floods and wondering if you’d been credited with the video footage.
Yes Kassalee it was me! This is just nuts how many offers I have been getting from all around the world...who knew!
Nice work! I've never even heard of whistling spiders. It looks huge!
I couldn't do that, spiders...shudder...
Wow! I 'loved' a post about this on facebook. Thank you for saving that spider and valuing his/her life! I really appreciate people like you in the world :)
Thanks so much sparrow x. It’s so nice to see positivity because there has been some really nasty comments on social media.
Totally ignore any nasty comments Gofton which I’m sure you have.
You did what you did as you you have a loving caring nature - what a wonderful feeling to have saved this amazing spider.
Happy bright spot amongst the floods up your way - and the clean up - what a mammoth job.
Those trolls will already be onto the next story they can try to stir up.
Nice nails too Gofton!
Thanks Kassalee, you are too kind x
P.S I hope you are staying safe over in QLD! I heard on the news that a BULL SHARK was swimming down the street! Couldn't believe it!
I saw this on the news. Good on you, Gofton. I personally wouldn't be keen to go near it, lol
I saw this on a news article today. There's no way I could have gone near that huge spider - it's way too big for my liking.
You can keep it Gofton!!!
Hey Stay C...There’s a part of me that’s wishes I did but she belongs in her own environment.
Whoaaa!! Good luck G!!
Saw it and liked it! Love your work Gofton!
I saw that on the late news too! That was YOU? Whoa! (I think I'd rather wrestle a croc or a bull shark!)
Well misfortune8...My biggest fears are crocodiles and sharks so not too sure about that :)
That's a very kind gesture Gofton. I'm an animal lover myself and try to save spiders that get in my house rather than killing them. Did you let it go on your hand? I use a glass usually but that's pretty big!
I felt she was more scared of falling in the water compared to my hand so I wish I had...that would have been epic :)
I saw this on the internet and thought it was so big but not poisonous right ?
Anyway my son has a lot of emphathy for insects/creatures and yesterday he told me at uni he tried an insect flavoured icecream which everyone was lining up for ! Is this for real as it doesnt sound appetising and he couldnt explain what its made from .
Haha Harmony Queen! Yes, insects are a great source of protein but I have never heard of an icecream! This particular spider is dangerous to birds and cats etc but not usually toward humans.
way to go- this warms my heart!!
I saw this on Facebook too!! I couldnt even believe the poor thing got itself stuck.. awesome save!!
This mask was different from the others as it had a blue layer on top of the white mask and it was already prepared ready to use. Simply peel the blue cover off and apply.
