A man from Australia will forever carry the nickname Spiderman, after a painful encounter with a spider in Bali.

Dylan Maxwell returned from his trip to discover an inch-long welt on his belly.

A doctor thought it was just a bug bite; in truth, the spider had crawled into Dylan’s abdomen through an incision from a previous surgery.

As the spider burrowed beneath the skin, it left a track of inflammation, all the way up Dylan’s chest.

Once doctors discovered what had happened, they went in and removed the spider.
