Stomper Sutharman was intrigued when he came across an unusual-looking spider that appeared to be staring at him along Petir Road on Friday afternoon (July 26).

He spotted the insect on a bollard at the HDB carpark of Block 202 Petir Road, at around 3.20pm.

"I was near the walkway when I noticed something strange and small on the bollard," he said.

"I thought it was a prank and went closer, but couldn't see what it was.

"I used my phone to take a photo and zoomed in on it."

Sutharman said he found it "very creepy" when he realised that it was a human-faced spider.

"Has anybody else seen this species of spiders in their neighbourhood?" he asked.
