The vibrant bright green arachnid has the face of an alien on it’s back – complete with bulging eyes to scare away predators.

The scary-looking insect is a type of orb-weaver but is more commonly known as an ‘Alien Butt Spider’.

Photographer, Robert Whyte, snapped the creepy spider at Bob Cassimaty Park in Brisbane, Australia although the creature would look more at home in new movie Alien: Covenant which is out on Friday (May 12).

The 61-year-old from Australia said: “As I was photographing a rainforest plant, I saw an orb web glinting green and gold in the morning sun.

“I knew there would be a spider nearby in a retreat in a curled leaf, because these orb weaver spiders occupy the web at night but stay in their silken retreat during the day.

“I have been searching for this spider since I first photographed it in October 2011.

“I gently coaxed her out of her retreat onto a leaf and she remained perfectly still while I took heaps of photos.

“When I finished taking photos I let her crawl back into her retreat and made sure she was happy.

“These spiders are harmless and beneficial for the environment.

“It makes me laugh how I can’t look at this spider without seeing an alien on its butt. I wondered where the space ship was.”
