Spider Lived In Woman’s Ear

A spider was found living in a woman’s ear.

The spider apparently crawled into the woman’s ear canal while she slept and lived there for five days.

In those five days, the woman complained of an itchy ear. She decided to visit Changsha Central Hospital of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery.

Doctors took peek inside her ear and found the spider alive inside the woman’s ear.

Doctors were able to force the spider out using a saline solution.

Philip Kohler, an entomology professor at the University of Florida told Huffington Post last year that insects probably seek refuge in the ear canal for heat or moisture.

So…. will you be sleeping with ear muffs tonight?
