The most venomous spider in the world is the Brazilian Wandering Spider, or
the banana spider. This aggressive spider wanders the forest floors of
Central and South America looking for food. Just a small amount of venom is
enough to kill a human.
When a spider’s scientific name is derived from the Greek for murderess
(Phoneutria) you can guess it’s going to be trouble and this is certainly
the case for the wandering spiders. According to Guinness World Records the
Brazilian wandering spider (Phoneutria fera) is officially the world’s most
venomous spider. It is capable of injecting a powerful neurotoxin which is
nearly 20 times more deadly that that of the Black Widow spider if it gets
into the blood stream.
Rounding out the top five are ;
2. - Sydney funnel web
3. - Brown Recluse
4. - Redback / Black Widow Spider
5. - Six-eyed Sand Spider
