Dominic MonaghanDominic Monaghan is planning an expedition into the African jungle in a bid to find the world's largest spider. The star, who has a huge collection of reptiles and insects, is desperate to try and locate the Hercules Baboon Spider, which was last spotted in Nigeria in the early 1900s.

If Monaghan succeeds in locating the arachnid, he'll end up with a place in the Guinness Book Of Records.

He says, "I'm going there, hopefully with a crew of people, to catch the largest spider on the planet. It's called the Hercules Baboon Spider. There's one specimen of it in the Natural History Museum in London. It's about 14 or 15 inches. There's only one - they found it in the early 1900s in Nigeria... A biologist found that spider, put it in alcohol and that's it, that's all they have...

"This thing is way bigger than a dinner plate, and way bigger than anything else that's out there right now. We don't know how poisonous the spider is, we don't know whether is jumps... It's all unchartered territory. If we find it, we'll be in the Guiness Book Of Records."
