In the "Spirit" of Halloween and all things creepy, Carnival Spirit arrived this morning in Sydney with a giant redback spider on its bow. The native Australian varmint adds an Australian "bite" to the American Halloween tradition. Research shows that more people are afraid of spiders than anything else. This one is more than 18 feet high. If they grow them this big in Australia, we can see why.
