A massive venomous spider capable of killing humans 15 minutes after a bite has been handed in at a reptile park.

The Australian Reptile Park said the huge arachnid, named Colossus, is the biggest male funnel web spider they've seen.

Colossus, said to measure between 7cm and 8cm in length, was dropped off at the wildlife sanctuary in Somersby, New South Wales, after being found in a back garden.

The park said the spider will now be "milked" for its venom to boost its anti-poison supplies.
