First things first. I HATE spiders. They are creepy, sneaky, ugly and they send shivers up my spine thinking about them crawling everywhere. Having said that I found out about this new species of spider in Sri Lanka and I had to share it with you. Why? Because this spider is the size of the human face!
I can handle snakes and lizards, crickets don't bother me and mice are not on my "favorites" list but I can handle them. However, there are 2 things that I absolutely CANNOT stand: roaches and spiders. So when I ran across this show on Animal Planet I was creeped out...the first episode I see is about a house infested with brown recluse spiders!
A man, seemingly in good health before receiving 19 black widow spider bites, is now dead.
The 40 year old man noticed the bites on his foot about 2 weeks before his death. He told friends he was feeling better, then unexpectedly died.
