NOTE: The spider photo below is not to scale.
It's actually considerably bigger than that.
A face-sized tarantula has been discovered in Sri Lanka, and a photo of the eight-legged giant has since gone viral. It's ... not a small creature. Or un-scary.
The photo of the huge spider was shared by Wired on April 2, shocking readers and being shared across the Internet. And it is surprisingly real.
The newly discovered "face-sized" tarantulas were reportedly found living in trees in Sri Lanka, the only place on Earth they are known to exist.
