The spider, later named Charlotte, is possibly the biggest huntsman spider ever to be photographed. The woman rescued Charlotte from being killed and then released her on the rescue's farm.
Huntsman spiders are typically about five inches across, and are not considered dangerous at all. Charlotte may look a little scary, but really, she just wants to live a safe and happy life.
"She was a beautiful, calm spider, not aggressive in any way and like most spiders she just wanted to go about her business eating bugs and living in peace," the rescue wrote on its Facebook page. "She didn't or doesn't need to be killed! Poor spiders are so misunderstood!"
