Spiders. They're the stuff of nightmares. And there are few more deadly than the huntsman spider in Australia.

Huntsman spiders are among the deadliest arachnids in the world, because of the speed and precision with which they hunt their prey.

The poor mouse who came across a huntsman in Australia learned this too late. 

In footage filmed by an Australian man, the spider is seen carrying the mouse across a wall. The man's heard asking "where's he going to put it?" - a fair question, considering the mouse is as large as the spider itself. 

Watch the video below and marvel at how terrifying nature can be.
