It's not hard to guess where this video was shot...

We've got some pretty hardcore spiders in South Africa -- but we've clearly got nothing on Australia, as this horrifying video shows.

A clip of a giant Huntsman spider carrying a dead mouse off to eat it has gone viral, having been viewed over 7 million times.

The simultaneously disturbing and amazing footage was filmed by Jason Womal from Queensland Australia on Saturday 22 October.

“So I am just about to leave for work ... and neighbor says, ‘You want to see something cool’ and I say, ‘hell yeah,’” Jason Womal wrote on Facebook. “We proceed to his place and he shows me this.”

Luckily for the spider, Jason is certainly not arachnophobic. "Ok guys so just letting you all know that the spider is fine," he captioned a photo of his eight-legged new friend.

"We have named him Hermie, we have adopted him and he is now running his own extermination business out of our town Coppabella. Oh and he is now paying rent. Lol"
