Baby spiders emerge in nightmare video

THE bulbous, white egg sac open and a long, black leg slides out, followed by another and then another until a wave of baby, eight-eyed funnel-web spiders are crawling towards you!

Sounds like the stuff of nightmares, right?

Not for the brave staff at the Australian Reptile Park.

The park released a video of staff helping a brood of the highly venomous arachnids take their first, creepy-crawly steps into the world.

"Baby Funnel web spiders coming out of an egg sack is the stuff of some people's nightmares - but we love them," the video was captioned.

I guess someone has to!
