Remember our story a couple months ago about a highly venomous, aggressive Brazilian wandering spider invading a German supermarket, then disappearing without a trace? (Here's a link to that story, if you missed it and want some fresh nightmare fuel.) Well, it appears the hairy horror brought some relatives across the water (or it really took “wandering” to a whole new level), because a swarm containing dozens of the same species – baby versions – made an even more terrifying appearance in the UK this week, literally bursting from a bunch of bananas in a family's kitchen.

Consi Taylor, her husband and their two children ran in terror from their London home when she realized that the weird spots on her newly bought bananas were not mold... and they were crawling across the kitchen table. After sending a photo of the spiders to a pest control expert, she was told to “get the hell out of the house.” Why? Because the Brazilian wandering spider is classified as the most venomous spider ever discovered, and its bite can kill an adult human in under two hours.
“I’d never heard of Brazilian wandering spiders before all this and I can’t imagine what it would be like facing a fully grown one,” Taylor told the Daily Mail after experts finally declared her home safe to enter. “I was trembling and shaking inside when I found out what they can do to you.”
