MOSCOW, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A Russian DJ posted a picture to Instagram of a spider he alleges was found in his salad while flying on airline Transaero.

Andrei Shirman, known by his stage name DJ Smash, posted a picture Monday to his Instagram and Twitter accounts of a spider he said crawled out of the salad served to him by a Transaero flight attendant, RIA Novosti reported Tuesday.

"Here's the charming wonder that clambered out of my salad," Shirman wrote in the picture's caption. "The stewardess told me that probably offering me a hot dish [after that] didn't make any sense."

Shirman joked to Russian tabloid LifeNews he briefly considered eating the spider to satisfy his hunger then jokingly suggested the flight attendant eat it as a means of apology.

A Transaero customer service operator posted an apology to the airline's Twitter page, saying officials would be in touch with Shirman about compensation for the incident.
