Spider of the Day

Brazilian Wandering Spider

Brazilian Wandering Spider

One of the most deadly spiders in the world was found in the produce section of an upscale Oklahoma grocery store.

[…]  Patients not only experience overall pain and an increase in blood pressure, they also get an uncomfortable erection.

In Brazil, emergency room staff can immediately spot the victims of a bite.


Happy Brazilian Wandering Spider

UPDATE: Hey, Look!  Wozza has more spiders – Australian spider funnies 😉
