One unsuspecting Twitter user was shocked to discover a gigantic insect sitting on top of her clothes.
Imagine opening your closet door to take out something to wear and finding an Asian giant hornet - the largest hornet species on Earth - chilling out on the shoulder of one of your sweaters.
This was the sight that greeted one terrified woman from Japan last week:
Her photographs of the gargantuan insect have since been shared thousands of times online with Internet users freaking out over the fact that something this large actually exists.
"It's the first time I've seen one this big," she wrote. "What am I supposed to do with this ?"
Fortunately though she was eventually able to remove it from her house without being stung.
