This creepy footage shows how a huge spider sheds its skin, creating the illusion that it has 16 legs.

In the hair-raising video, the enormous huntsman uses a huge amount of effort to free itself from its old skin.

And after seven minutes, it goes from having 16 legs to eight.

In one final push, the creature is free and stays perfectly still after nature works its magic.

It was filmed in the city of Ballarat in Victoria, Australia, by a family who found the spider.

The arachnid was so still afterwards that the woman filming it thought it had died.
