Shop Worker Spider
February 23, 2012 by staff
Shop Worker Spider, A terrified shop worker let out a scream when she found a venomous spider crawling out of a bunch of bananas. The Asda worker discovered the ctenidae spider, commonly known as the banana spider, on Tuesday.
A colleague at the supermarket in Chesser, Edinburgh managed to get the adult female and its 10cm leg span into a plastic jar and called the Scottish SPCA.
Animal rescue officer Fiona Thorburn collected the spider and took it to Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World. However, the creature died overnight.
Ms Thorburn said: “The spider was found in a box of bananas that originated from Colombia. Although she was not very large, she was quite an impressive-looking creature, so we can understand why the person who found her let out a loud scream.
