The moment the world’s most vicious spider was discovered in a pack of supermarket bananas stunned a shocked taxi driver.

Joe Stein (37), opened his fruit bag to find a dark mass 2 inches in diameter hanging from it. He was scared to watch the phenomenon twitch.

After stabilizing his nerves, he threw the item outside. He then retrieved the specimen and examined it closely, only to find that it was a dangerous Brazilian wandering spider.

Brazilian wandering Spiders belonged to the genus Phoneutria. This means, in Greek,’murderress’. This spider is one of the most dangerous on Earth, and can inflict severe injuries to people.

Joe from Beckenham in Kent said that he had to adjust his eyes so he could be seen on the other side of me. It was quite shocking.

“Obviously, I was stunned, and my girlfriend was also shocked to learn that it was actually a deadly spider, if alive.

“Fortunately, I believe it’s dead. But it made us jump and felt on edge.

“It is my goal to raise awareness and make everyone aware.

Joe Stein, 37 (pictured), discovered the 2in creature hidden in bananas he purchased from Sainsbury’s Bromley.

Taxi driver bought the bananas from Bromley’s Sainsbury’s in West Wickham on Monday.

He opened his bag to find the horrifying spider carcass as he was about to cut up bananas for breakfast the next day.

He stated, “I opened the bag and everything was fine. I turned over the bananas, but all that was visible to me was this dark mass attached to the bananas.

‘It was an insect and it began to move, so I shouted at my girlfriend “Don’t enter the kitchen!”

He quickly dumped the entire bag into his outside bin, and warned Natasha Gooda (39), to not come near.

Joe, an arachnophobe, returned after three hours and fished the contents of the bag out from under the garbage bin.

His explanation was that he emptied all the contents of the bag into a container and when it dropped out, he put a lid on it. It wasn’t even moving.

“We googled it, and it appears to be 99% similar to the wandering spider.”

Phoneutria fera is the Brazilian wandering spider. It is most commonly found in South America.

They are also known by the name “banana spider” because they move across the jungle floor at night to find food.

The spider, understood to be dead, can be seen wedged between two bananas that were imported from Colombia

It can be seen between the bananas, which were both imported from Colombia, as the spider is believed to have died.

Guinness Book of World Records named this spider the most dangerous spider because it has the strongest neurotoxic venom of all living things.

They can also cause irregular heartbeats and salivation.

It is also possible for the venom to produce a painful, long-lasting erection in males.

Joe the Stepfather-of-1 said, “I looked at a few photos, it looked exactly the same; the large hairy legs, big abdomen, and little humps that come out.

“I was surprised to learn that this spider is the most dangerous and deadly in the world.

Joe and Natasha, a mental health nurse, contacted Sainsbury’s to request that the spider be sent to them for more investigation.

Although the bananas are now in the garbage, the spider still lives outside of their house in a plastic wrapper.

Sainsbury’s spokesperson stated that they were in contact with customers to apologize for the experience.

“Incidents such as this are very rare, and we have procedures in place to prevent them.”

Is the Brazilian Wandering Spider a deadly and dangerous spider? When have they been spotted in Britain?

Guinness Book of World Records names the Brazilian wandering Spider as the world’s most poisonous arachnid. Its scientific name – Phoneutria – is Greek for ‘murderess’.

The wandering spider is known for not building webs. Instead, they walk on the jungle floor looking for prey at night.

Brazilian wandering Spiders prefer to sleep at night so they can find shelter during the day. They are dangerous because they can hide in cars and houses, which makes them easy to disturb by people.

While they might be known as the most dangerous spider, they don’t have the greatest size. They can reach up to 5 inches in length.

Spiders defend themselves by lifting their bodies on to their hind legs.

14 were killed by bites until an antidote came along in 1996.

This venom can lead to severe pain and inflammation as well as loss of muscle control, respiratory problems and paralysis.

A spider bite may also result in an unwelcome erection, which can last up to four hours.

In one case, a single spider killed two children in São Sebastião, Brazil. A British man was hospitalized for a week after being bit by a wandering Brazilian spider in 2005. The spider had arrived in Brazil in a banana shipment.

A British man was hospitalized for a week after being bit by a web-eating spider in 2005. The spider had arrived in a cargo of bananas and traveled to Britain.

After one of them was discovered in 2008, a Tesco was shut down in Chatham (Kent).
