MELBOURNE, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- An Australian man has begun his attempt to spend three weeks in the front window of his shop with 40 venomous spiders.

Nick Le Souef said he will spend three weeks in the window enclosure of his opal shop in Melbourne with spiders including redbacks, hairy huntsmen and white-tailed biting spiders, the Melbourne Herald Sun reported Tuesday.


"I've put most of them in together already and a few have eaten the others so that's where I expect their attention will be," he said.

Le Souef said the stunt is intended to raise money for children's charity Variety.
