A man from Sydney, Australia named William Williamson posted via Facebook a photo of what seemed to be a sushi-like spider sitting on his stairs. This “sparked alarm among some users who had never seen anything like it before.”
'Time to burn the house down,' one person said.
'At first glance I thought this was a piece of sushi,' another said.
The creature was identified as the Magnificent Spider. This is often found in Queensland and New South Wales. According to the Australian Museum, the spider is not harmful to humans.
