That must have been a horror… And everyone all admires of his courage.
This is one brave kid! Tom Buchanan of Australia laid in a clear perspex box and had 125 Golden Orb Spiders put onto his body for 55 seconds during the ‘Australia: Guinness World Records’ TV show in Sydney, New South Wales on 27 August 2005.
Despite only needing to have seventy-five spiders on his body to set the record, Buchanan had one hundred and twenty-five Golden Orb spiders placed on him whilst in a Perspex tank. He also voluntarily exceeded the time limit, staying in the tank for fifty-five seconds.
