To the surprise, and no doubt, horror of all, doctor found that a spider had crawled inside the woman’s ear canal and lived there for five days.

The woman, referred to only as Ms. Lee, arrived at China’s Changsha Central Hospital of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery on Aug. 8, according to RedNet News.

Doctor’s say it appears the spider had crawled into Ms. Lee’s ear while she slept.
