You’d be forgiven for thinking that there’s a new spider trick on your computer screen, designed to catch you out but the truth might terrify you a bit more.

Yet Jarrad Elson, from Port Lincoln, South Australia couldn’t be caught out quite that easily.

Realising quickly that one of Australia’s many eight legged critters was actually perched on the screen, moving his mouse slowly seemed to confuse the arachnid. 

The spider appeared captivated by the cursor.

Jarrad said, “A spider on my computer screen started following my mouse cursor. 

“Then to prove it’s real, I flicked it off.”
