Back in the mid-1980's, Susanne Zingler of Germany became a little surprised when her new potted plant hissed and squeaked after she watered it. She thought it was just air escaping dry soil.
A week later she watered the plant again, only this time, it not only hissed, but the soil began to squirm. Panicked, she called the local florist, who came right over. One look at the plant and he called the Cologne Zoo. The Wildlife experts removed a large female tarantula and her nest of 50 little spiders!
