WATCH: The Cheeky Moment A Spider Crawls Out Of A Woman’s Ear
Ever had a tingling itch in your ear? That annoying sensation that won’t go away? You thought you thoroughly dried out your ears after having a shower, but it’s still there. Well the reason for that is obvious – spiders. Spiders in your ear.
Nah not really. Most the spiders in Australia are too big to fit in your ear anyway. But for this Indian woman who decided to take a nap outside, this was in fact the case. Unfortunately, an unwanted tenant had decided to move into her ear whilst she was sleeping.
According to The Sun, she woke up with a severe pain in her ear. Upon getting to hospital, examinations revealed a small spider sitting inside her ear canal. What was he doing in there? Just chillin’? Waiting for a mate? I guess we’ll never know. But he clearly knew he was busted when the lights shone in.
Thankfully he gave himself up peacefully and gradually made his way out of the woman’s ear. Spiders aren’t necessarily attracted to light, but seeing as most of their prey is, they’ll frequently be seen hanging around waiting to catch a feed. Kind of like the guys you see at R&B clubs. They actually tend to prefer dark warm places, like your ears.
Stories of spiders and various other things crawling into people’s ears aren’t exactly uncommon, and this little fella isn’t the biggest thing that could be climbing into your ear whilst you sleep. In fact spiders are likely to keep some of those other ear invaders at bay, so you might be better off with a spider tenant in your ear, or at least keep one or two as room-mates.
Hopefully the doctor’s did the right thing with the little guy and put him out in the garden to be on his merry way. Off to do spider stuff like eating bugs, scaring complete wimps, and crawling into peoples ears.
