Spider lives inside man for three days

A man had to have a tropical spider surgically removed after it entered his body through a small scar he had from a previous surgery.

A man from Western Australia had to surgically remove a tropical spider after it borrowed into his torso through a scar in his belly button from a recent surgery. Dylan Thomas, the victim, was in Indonesia when the tropic spider picked him as its host. It lived inside him for three days.
