Shocking footage reveals a spider spinning its web inside a man's ear
The unnamed man from eastern China went to the doctor after experiencing a ‘crawling sensation’ in his right ear.
The doctor, Dr Zhang Pan from the Hospital of Yangzhou University, used an endoscope to investigate the cause of the crawling sensation - and was shocked by what he discovered.
Deep within the man’s ear, the camera revealed a small spider, that had spun an intricate web spanning across the entire ear canal.
To catch the critter, the doctors initially tried to use a slim pair of tweezers.
However, the spider escaped the grips, forcing the doctors to flush it out using a saline solution.
Thankfully, the spider was caught before it could cause any permanent damage, and the man escaped unscathed.
