MOST Dangerous Spiders On Earth


MOST Dangerous Spiders On Earth From three dangerous widows to the planet’s
homeless arachnids, in this video we look at the Most Dangerous Spiders On Earth. #13 Ornate Tiger Spider
The golden tinged arachnid known as the Ornate Tiger Spider is an endemic species to the
nation of Sri Lanka. Sometimes reaching ten inches in length, these
brightly colored, furry creatures are nearly as hulking as they are tantalizing. But beyond the vivid exterior, the ornate
tiger spider hides a painful venom. Bites from this tarantula can cause extreme
muscle cramping and pain, but you should be fine as long as you never try to corner them. #12 Wolf Spider
Seen at times with a slew of eggs on their back, the genus commonly known as Wolf Spiders
exist all across the globe and make use of a brown and black covered coat to camouflage
against dirt and wood, no matter the individual species. While only sure to bite if provoked, the wolf
spider is venomous. But its venom is relatively mild. Causing itching, swelling and mild pain, it
is often no worse than a common bug bite. For years, though, many thought the wolf spider
to be at fault for various necrosis-afflicted bite victims. These bites have since been recognized as
belonging to a different spider, leaving the wolf spiders of the world to the designation
of “pesky pests” rather than “man-slayers”. #11 Hobo Spider
Known for the funnel-like structures it builds out of its own silk sheeting, the Hobo Spider
separates itself from the Australian funnel-web spider by its preferred location. Spanning the metropolitan regions of Western
Europe all the way to Central Asia, and even being found in North America, this species
makes the city streets its home. But other than crowding the crevasses of sidewalks
and alleyways, how dangerous is this creature? Scientists once believed the hobo spider to
be responsible for most all spider bites in the American Pacific Northwest. The supposed venom of this spider has become
a topic of debate, though, and the CDC no longer lists the hobo spider on its website
as a venomous spider in the US. #10 Six-Eyed Sand Spider
Perhaps one of the most terrifying looking of the entries on this list, the menacing
eyes of the Six-Eyed Sand Spider are some of the only clues to its presence once it
submerges itself into a dune. Its brown exterior is nearly imperceptible
among the sand, making it even easier to deliver its harsh venom. Envenomation by the six-eyed sand spider is
thought to cause serious and even life-threatening wounds due to its highly necrotic nature. However, the majority of research on this
genus has been in vitro and scientists have yet to record the effects of their venom on
actual humans. This would most likely indicate that they
have rarely, if ever, bitten a human. Two more species of this spider were only
recently discovered off the coast of Namibia. #9 Red Widow Spider
Only found in the sand pine-dominated dunes of central and Southern Florida, the Red Widow
is rarer to encounter than its brown and black cousins, but dangerous just the same. Here it builds nests with its webbing among
the fanned leaves of palmetto bushes. Lurking among the foliage, the reddish orange
spider awaits prey with a stinging bite, typically reserved for flying insects. Should a human wander near, though, they risk
the chance of receiving a muscle spasm-inducing bite. In the case of some victims, this symptom
can become a permanent fixture, reoccurring years later to great dismay. However the median lethal dose of the red
widow’s venom was measured to be much more than any individual could carry, at least
ruling out the possibility of fatal consequences. #8 Mouse Spider
An intelligent species often found near human settlements, the three centimeter Mouse Spider
can be horrifying to look at with males exhibiting a bulbous, crimson head and fangs. Seventeen known species of this genus are
known and almost all of them reside in Australia, with one exception being found in Chile. In these native habitats, mouse spiders reside
within self-constructed trapdoor burrows, patiently waiting for prey like wasps, scorpions,
and centipedes. This genus takes down its soon to be dinner
with toxins comparable to its highly dangerous cousin, Australian funnel-web spiders. Unlike them, though, the mouse spider is much
less aggressive towards humans and few envenomations ever occur. And when they do, thankfully, anti-venom crafted
for funnel-web spiders has been shown to treat mouse spider bites as well! #7 Brown Widow Spider
The stripe-legged Brown Widow is thought to originate in South Africa. Today, the arachnid also known as the brown
button spider, can be found all over the world, from the United States to Japan and everywhere
in between. Unlike their dark, onyx relatives, the brown
widow sports an orange or yellow hourglass symbol on the underside of its abdomen. It also tends to inject less per bite than
a black widow, despite having equally toxic venom. But the restraint brown widows show towards
humans is absent when facing off with other spiders. One study at the University of California,
Riverside showed signs that the newly introduced brown widows were displacing black ones! Researchers hope this to be ultimately beneficial
to human life thanks to the somewhat safer spider taking over its famous cousin’s local
duties. #6 Brazilian Wandering Spiders
Referred to by some as the armed spider or banana spider, this genus of large hairy spiders
is most commonly known as Brazilian Wandering Spiders. Relatively large with a leg span of up to
almost 6 inches, these big arachnids were named for their strange behavior of wandering
jungle floors rather than looking after a web at night. During the day though, it tends to hide out
in dark, moist locations like banana plants or under fallen logs. Unlike some smaller spiders, the Brazilian
wandering spiders are fully equipped to envenom humans, though they will often release only
a small portion if any of their venom. Still, multiple fatal cases have been reported
and some researchers have even concluded its venom to be more potent than widows or even
funnel-web spiders! #5 Yellow Sac Spider
Strangely attracted to the engines of motor vehicles, Yellow Sac Spiders have been supposedly
found weaving silken webs in the canister vent of cars. This was specifically an issue for the Mazda
6 in 2011 and with webs blocking the emission systems, Mazda actually had to recall the
car! The incident has lead to wider recognition
of the yellow sac spiders love for the smell of gasoline. But just because it might share your taste
in cars doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to get too chummy with this eight-legged fiend. The venom of the yellow sac spider can pain,
swelling, and lesions. Varying reports of necrosis have scientists
on the fence about its true danger, but as long as that remains a possibility, seeking
out proper medical attention immediately is still a recommended best course of action. #4 Black Widow Spider
The notorious reputation of the Black Widow have convinced many that this spider is among
the most lethal, but in reality, few humans ever perish as a result of its bite. Resulting in increasing pain, rigid muscles,
profuse perspiration and vomiting, the effects of a black widow bite can be similar to food
poisoning in the range of their severity. While most symptoms can resolve on their own
within 24 hours, medical assistance is still highly recommended. Like other spiders, the damage wrought by
a black widow can be exponentially worse in those with medical conditions or a weaker
immune system like children and the elderly. Look out for this prolific spider, adorned
with its iconic red hourglass marking, across the United States, from Texas to Ohio, as
well as in parts of Canada and the Dominican Republic. #3 Redback Spider
Sometimes known as the Australian Black Widow, the Redback Spider has its own unique brand
of dangerous to bring to the table. Demonstrating sexual dimorphism, the females
of this species are nearly four times the size of their male counterparts and operate
with the sense of a tyrannical matriarch, often eating males during mating season and
hoarding nearly all captured food for themselves! Redback spiders pose just as lethal a threat
to humans as they do to their males with a bite than can cause nausea, vomiting, hypertension,
fever, hallucinations, and very rarely seizures, comas, and worse! These effects are much worse for children
and the elderly, though. Still, with grown adults, medical attention
is not required. Instead it’s recommended to look out for
early symptoms and only seek out help if they persist, despite simple store-bought pain
relief. #2 Brown Recluse
Native to the southeastern and some of the midwest United States, the infamous Brown
Recluse terrorizes homes by making its strange, asymmetrical webs in closets, garages, cellars,
and sheds. Often miscited as the source of spider bites
around the world, it is only in these areas that someone would typically be bitten by
this species. And with a bite like the brown recluse’s,
you’ll want to hope it’s something else. The recluses venom is hemotoxic, which can
obliterate blood cells and cause massive tissue damage. There is also a chance for the bite to have
necrotic affects, causing degenerative lesions in victims. Luckily, the species is not very aggressive
and most bites occur as a result of the home-invading brown recluse finding its way into rarely
worn clothing. Should you suspect you’ve been bitten by
a brown recluse, experts recommend bringing the culprit with you to ensure the proper
treatment is applied. #1 Funnel-Web Spiders
Seen across the eastern coast of Australia among their trademark homes, the world’s
most dangerous spider is the Funnel-Web. At a maximum size of just two inches, the
medium-sized funnel-web spider may not appear so scary on first glance…until you see its
fangs! These massive appendages inject a haunting
venom that can cause over two dozen escalating, and even fatal, symptoms. These spiders are easily agitated and trust
us when we say you don’t want to see them angry.
