Kourtney Kardashian Keeps Her Cool While Encountering Gigantic Spider in Australia

Kourtney Kardashian is visiting Australia, allegedly accompanying her rockstar husband Travis Barker on his Blink-182 tour, and she's all ready made friends with the locals.

Mrs. Barker took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a snap on her Instagram story of what appears to be her welcoming party, a giant spider, that looks to be around the size of a kitten or small puppy!

She captioned the photo 'Ummm no thanks." And then she added, "biggest fear is spiders, I think I’m handling this really well."

Perth Now says that this big boy appears to be a giant Huntsman spider, and if that's true then Kardashian has nothing to be afraid of, because these spiders aren't dangerous to humans, and they usually run away from people.

Plus, these spiders are pretty cool, at least the mamas are, because not only do they lay over 200 eggs and chase away other animals when protecting these precious eggs, they also sometimes eat their mates after they are done mating.

Girl power, Kourtney!

If Kourtney wants to be afraid of something worth being afraid of, there truly are some much more terrifying creatures in Australia.

5 Of the Scariest Creatures That Call Australia Home

1: The Eastern Brown Snake

A mom in Australia recently found an Eastern Brown Snake in her toddler son's underwear drawer. These snakes are considered one of the world's deadliest snakes, and they are highly venomous and responsible for a significant number of snakebite deaths in Australia. That's a big old 'No Thanks' from me, Kourtney!

2: The Blue Ringed Octopus

These are really cool looking right? Wrong! These octopi are small but they have a deadly venom that can cause paralysis and respiratory failure in humans. Their salivary glands produce tetrodotoxin, which is over 1,000 times more toxic than cyanide. Be glad you didn't see one of these little guys in your doorway, Kourtney!

3: Cassowary

These mega-birds can reach six feet tall, run at speeds up to 30 miles per hour and have a 5-inch, dagger-like claw powerful enough to sever your arm or slice through your abdomen in one swoop. This is not a bird, this is a dinosaur! The good news is, it's reported that they have only ever killed one person.

4: Stonefish

Stonefish are the most venomous fish known, and their stings can be deadly to humans. These fish, which are in the same classification as scorpionfish, camouflages itself among rocks and sand, making it difficult to spot, and then if you step on one you are in horrific pain and have to get tp a hospital right quick.

5: Saltwater Crocodile

Saltwater crocodiles are the largest living reptiles, with an average size of 17 feet and 1,000 pounds and are notorious for their aggressive nature and powerful jaws. Their teeth can be up to five inches long. They can live to be over seventy years old, and yes, they have eaten humans before. Here's an absolutely adorable video that's an absolute bop that explains how to keep yourself safe from being eaten by a crocodile. This was a public service announcement put out by the Northern Territory Government.

Any animal that needs a cute little song and video to show how not to get eaten by them is way way scarier than any big spider, if you ask me.

I would never want to see one of these guys in my doorway!
