Sixty-seven-year-old Melbourne resident Nick Le Souef will spend the next three weeks living among hundreds of poisonous spiders.
According to the AFP,
"I am a bit silly doing what I am doing," Le Souef said of his decision to closet himself with potentially lethal redbacks as well as tarantula-like huntsmen and black house spiders, which also have nasty bites.
All part of an elaborate charity stunt, Le Souef will remain inside a 12-foot-by-four-foot enclosure in the window of a shop he owns. Le Souef hopes to raise $50,000 in donations for a children's charity by pulling off the stunt.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports,
He has a history of these stunts, holding Australian records for three-week stints in a snake pit, a shark tank and also in a cage with redback spiders.
