Nora Serrat returned from a trip in Cameroon, Africa where she was working in a rain forest and found an unwelcome surprise in her backpack.

A giant Huntsman spider crawled out of Serrat’s backpack after making the trip from Africa.

The spider’s body was about an inch and a half long, with very long legs. The female spider was also carrying an egg sac with 200 baby spiders in it.

Authorities took the spider and her eggs to the London Zoo for safe keeping.
