William Williamson from Sydney found the spider sitting on his stairs, with legs that looked like soft shell crab and green orbs on its back resembling pieces of cucumber.
The peculiar creature has been identified as a Magnificent Spider, otherwise known as a Ordgarius magnificus spider. The spider is not dangerous to humans, according to the Australian Museum.
Magnificent Spiders are often found in New South Wales and Queensland and can grow up to 2.5cm in length. Unlike most spiders they don’t spin a web, these crafty creatures use a sticky silk orb to catch its prey instead. The garden-dwelling spiders are also great for pest control.
