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

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

[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.              



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