Deadly spider with venom found on bananas bought at the grocery store
Woman Shocked to Find World's Most venomous Spider inside Banana
|A British woman found the world's most venomous spider hitching a ride on bananas that she bought at the grocery store|
Maria Layton reached into the bag of bananas after shopping at a Tesco grocery story. That's when she saw the massive spider cocoon hiding out in the bananas.
A British couple made a shocking discovery a few days ago after buying bananas from their local grocery store.
The bananas were infested with spiders and not just any spiders.
When a Brazilian Wandering Spider bites a man, its venom can cause a painful four-hour erection and can even lead to death.
"I was so scared -- I don't like spiders at the best of times, but have read about the Brazilian wandering spiders and was very frightened about the potential threat," she told The Telegraph.
The woman who bought the bananas recognized the spider cocoon and put the bananas in a sealed container in the freezer to kill all the spiders.
Note: The venom of the spider can cause a man to have an erection for four hours and it is being studied for use in erectile dysfunction treatments."
