Hundreds of deadly baby spiders burst out of this egg sack for the first time in this stomach churning clip.

The tiny, venomous funnel web spiders were filmed by staff at the Australian Reptile Park as they crawled out of their egg sack.

Funnel web spiders are milked for their venom at the park, which is used to produce life-saving anti-venom to treat dangerous spider bites.

The park filmed the spiders' birth, as they squeezed out of a hole in the egg sack, delicately prized open with tweezers by staff.

They posted the video on Facebook with the caption: 'Baby Funnel web spiders coming out of an egg sack is the stuff of some people's nightmares - but we love them!'
