He can't fly. He doesn't shoot webs. And he isn't wearing a superhero costume.              

 

But Australians are calling Nick Le Souef 'Spiderman'.              

 

The Melbourne Opal shop owner began a record attempt to live with 400 dangerous arachnids in his storefront for three-weeks.              

 

All for charity.              

 

[Nick Le Souef, Shop owner]:             

"Redbacks will be staying in their webs, so are the black house spiders, the huntsman might be roaming around a bit but I mean I can easily shoo them away."              

 

But the stunt isn't for everyone.              

 

[Visitor]:            

"I don't like it, it is too scary."

 

Some of the country's native species are amongst the deadliest in the world.
