Facts That Prove Spiders Save Us All

Dozens Of The World’s Deadliest Spider + Grocery Store Banana + London Family = NOPE.

The thing about this is: it’s the worst thing ever, kill all spiders, crush all bananas, set fire to the world.

A family had to move into a hotel and fumigate their home after deadly South American spiders began hatching out of a bunch of Sainsbury’s bananas.

Terrified Consi Taylor, 29, said she saw something that looked like mould on a Colombian Fairtrade banana she was eating. However, on closer inspection she said she saw some “funny looking spots” and realised something was wrong.

“I had a closer look and was horrified to see they were spiders. They were hatching out on the table, scurrying around on my carpet. I was so scared I started crying,” she told The Sun.

They’re called “Brazilian walking spiders” or “banana spiders,” and this is what a fully grown one looks like.
