A man in Australia has been dubbed “spider man” after a bizarre turn of events during a trip to Bali.

This may look like a gruesome scar, but it’s actually the trail left by a spider that burrowed under Dylan Maxwell’s skin. Maxwell was visiting Indonesia when he noticed what he thought was a scratch about an inch-long.

He went to a doctor who told him it was a small insect bite…

But the trail kept growing up toward his chest.

Dylan Maxwell, spider victim, “a very searing, hot searing burning sensation. It was like nothing I’ve ever felt before.”

When it started to blister he says he got worried. Doctors realized that the spider crawled into Maxwell’s belly button through a fresh scar from a recent appendix operation. Doctors were able to pull out the spider.
