Nick had bought them from a supermarket and was about to eat it when he noticed a sac on the banana skin. Suddenly, a dozen spiders emerged from inside of the lump. Upon inquiring, the guy discovered that they were deadly Brazil wandering spiders.
Nick Southam, 49, had bought a banana from Lidl and was about to eat it when he noticed a weird sac on its peel. The guy was surprised when the sac popped and spiders emerged from it. Little did he know that he was about to ingest deadly Brazil wandering spiders.
Nick quickly took a photo of one of the spiders and posted it on iSpot, a specialist website to help identify wildlife. "Halfway through, I noticed a lump on the banana skin," he told. "I cut the lump open after finishing it, and tiny spiders came out. It had small eggs on the side of the banana. They were dozens of the tiny things but I didn't know where they came from. They were not very active and they would not survive well in our climate."
"It was only after I realized when I researched 'spider in banana' that this has happened before. There have been a few incidents over the past few years of people finding spiders in banana skins."
According to Nick, only a few of the species were alive while most of them were dead.
"I did some research and looked at photos of them when they're grown. I also found out they're the deadliest spider in the world. I find it interesting if a little scary," the lucky man added.
