Man places giant wild spider on face

A terrifying video has emerged from the United States of a many lying down with a large wild tarantula crawling on his face.

In the clip, the man lies motionless as the giant arachnid pads about on his face.

According to the filmer, he caught the brown tarantula when he saw it crossing a road in Utah and decided to put it on his face as a dare.

Utah is on the northern border of the tarantula’s native range, but the spiders can be found especially when males leave their burrows to search for a mate.
