Arachnophobia: World's Deadliest Spiders

Spiders are one of nature’s most incredible creatures, and there are millions of spider enthusiasts worldwide. However, caution must be taken with these eight-legged arachnids, as some can make you regret even going close to them. While only a fraction of spiders around the world can actually kill humans, their bites can still pack a punch. A spider’s venom is biologically designed to kill creatures equal to their size or smaller, but it can still cause severe harm to humans if bitten. Some bites affect only the bite area while others can produce cardiac or respiratory failure. When interacting spiders, it’s important to know which ones to handle with care, and which ones to avoid entirely. Read on to learn about the 10 most venomous spiders in the world!
