Venomous spider completely camouflages hiding spot with creepy tactic

A venomous wolf spider pulls a lid over its hiding space in the ground completely camouflaging it, a bizarre video has shown.

Jade Clancy captured the nightmarish sight in her partner’s house in Southern Tasmania.

In the video, a deep hole is seen dug into the earth before a huge wolf spider pops out of the top.

The fanged creature stretches its hairy legs out before reaching for a circular mound of mud and pulling it over the gap.

After placing it on top, the creature’s hidden space becomes completely camouflaged to any unsuspecting guests.
