Assam's 'spider-eating-man' wants to make a world record

By Super Admin

Jorhat (Assam), Sep. 13 (ANI): His passion is eating poisonous spiders, and he can finish almost 100 of them at a single go.

Raju Handique, a resident of Assam's Jorhat district, has now set his eyes on achieving world record of eating 1000 venomous spiders!

"My dream is to have my name on the Guinness Book of World Records. I started eating spiders when I was in school. One day a spider bit me and out of anger I ate it up and to my surprise nothing happened to me.

"Since then I started eating spiders. From one spider I 'graduated' to eating eight then 35 and then 65 spiders. Today I can finish 100 of them. Now I'm preparing to eat 1000 spiders in a day," said Raju, 30.

Raju's keenness to achieve the world record is taking him to every nook and corner of his house, courtyard and trees to find eight-legged crawling creatures.

According to him, spiders can be, bitter, sweet and sometimes even taste like milk.

His quintessential spider-eating habit leaves his friends and family members sringing, but all of them have accepted his passion for netting the world record with spiders. (ANI)
