  • Spider Smugglers?

    Two Germans were found with 210 plastic containers they were using to carry the arachnids, which included 232 tarantula spiders, nine spider eggs and a scorpion with seven of its young, as well as 67 roaches.

    Colombia, which is one of the world's 17 mega-diverse countries and boasts tens of thousands of different species, is a target for wildlife traffickers drawn by its biodiversity.

              They're big spiders, rather like a banana spider -- there's a thread about them here in off-topics (the linked article has pictures too). Georgians were saying they've become pretty problematic.

                So they look like Golden Orb weavers. At least they aren’t aggressive or poisonous, but if I walked into one I would turn into a screaming bitch of a human tornado.

                  I most assuredly would too. I don't even like barn spiders (the round ones that hang from the eaves) -- we have lots of those in our area.
