There are many reactions to having a spider on you but remaining calm is still the most impressive.
A huntsman spider has made itself famous by stopping an Australian press conference by crawling on a minister.
Health Minister Yvette D’Ath reacted incredibly well to discover that she had a large huntsman spider crawling on her.
She even cracked a joke about how she deals with crises well before moving on with the conference as the spider scuttles off.
She replied to the video on social media, jokingly saying that no spiders were harmed during the press conference.
