World's deadliest spider discovered in Britain inside a box of Tesco bananas | Mail Online: "The world's deadliest spider forced a supermarket to close after a terrified worker spotted it under a box of bananas.

The highly-venomous Brazilian Wandering Spider - a species responsible for killing more people than any other arachnid - was eventually captured by RSPCA officers.

Victims usually die within an hour of being bitten by the spider, which has a 4in leg-span and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the planet's most venomous animal."

Take a look at the ugly mug on this guy. It's enough to make you swear off bananas.
