Every bunch of bananas takes a mighty long trip to get to its final destination, and sometimes little critters hitch a ride like creepy crawly little stowaways aboard the SS Banana, taking them to see faraway lands...like Wales.
A man from Wales recently picked up a bag of banana from his local Tesco supermarket and brought a severe case of arachnophobia home for his wife.
She opened the bag of bananas and discovered to her horror that the bag held a cocoon full of spider stowaways- Brazilian Wandering Spiders, which look like this when full grown:
The Brazilian Wandering Spiders, or Banana Spiders as they’re commonly know, are considered the “world’s most venomous spider”, and their venom is known to cause painful erections that last far longer than a dose of Viagra.
The spiders started to hatch right before her eyes, so she threwthe bag in the freezer and called Tesco for some answers. The company requested she return the cocoon and fruit to the store so they could be investigated, still no word on whether the husband kept a few of the spiders around for the couple's next date night.
