Spider Burrows Into Australian Man's Abdomen

A terrifying and quite disgusting story of a spider that burrowed its way inside an Australian man's abdomen.

Dylan Thomas was vacationing with a friend in Bali, when the friend pointed out a strange part of the scar on Thomas's stomach. Doctors initially told him it was just an insect bite. However, after more pain and the scar not only increasing in size, but also bubbling, doctors realized it was something else entirely.

He posted on Facebook, "Well after running tests and putting things inside my stomach they finally found out it was a tropical spider that's been living inside of me for the last 3 days, managed to get it out luckily."

Thomas told Australian radio station 6PR, "It wasn't really a tickling sensation, obviously once the venom started to affect my skin it was a really burning sensation like a searing feeling,"

No surprise, Thomas says the whole ordeal ruined his vacation.
