Deadly spider at grocery store: "A Brazilian wandering spider, the most venemous spider in the world, was scurrying around a Whole Foods Market in Tulsa, Oklahoma. An employee caught the spider in the produce section and the store called the University of Tulsa. From News On 6:

'Within minutes you will have breathing problems, you'll start to lose control of your muscles, you'll start to drool and within 20 to 25 minutes you'll probably collapse on the floor and die of asphyxiation,' said Terry Childs (director of the university's animal facilities)...
Apparently the spider, also known as a banana spider, hitched a ride on some bunches of bananas all the way from Honduras. It turns out it is the kind of thing that happens all the time, but this particular spider is more threatening than most.
'This particular one happens to be one of the most aggressive ones I've actually come across. This thing will actually jump at you,' said Terry Childs.
