An escaped tarantula named Screwbox has sparked panic in a suburban home after a storm caved the ceiling in, smashing its enclosure.
Pet sitter Tahlia Renton, 24, returned to her family home to discover the ceiling had caved in and smashed the tarantula enclosure in the Perth suburb of Mindarie at 11:30am on Wednesday.
Parts of Mindarie were flooded on Tuesday evening with one car having to be pulled from the rising water and trees smashing through windshields.
The wild weather caused the ceiling to collapse in a room where Ms Renton keeps nine tarantulas, a python and a bearded dragon.
But when she only counted eight tarantulas, she feared that the venomous spider could fatally bite her two pet dogs.
