A family in Trikala, central Greece was in for a scary surprise when they had an unexpected “visit” from a large came spider.

The arachnoid species, which is also called a sun spider or by its scientific name Solifugae, is rarely encountered in Greece.

The creepy crawly was spotted and killed by the father, Dimitris Papavasileiou after his daughter heard a noise at the balcony door. As he explained to trikalaola.gr, he feared because he has three children, including a baby, and was uncertain if it was venomous.

“We live in Loggaki, we are a family with three children. Before long, our oldest daughter shouted horrified that she was seeing something outside the balcony door.”
