Peter Parker of Tulsa, OK raises Huntsman spiders, often mistaken for deadly Brazilian Wandering Spiders. Whole Foods Market is proud to offer one free spider with every 50-lb. purchase of organic bananas.
I'm sure many of you have heard about the Brazilian spider found in a bunch of bananas the other day.
Yes, you heard me right.
If you got bitten by one of these Brazilian spiders, this very second, you would have only 25 minutes to live, give or take a few seconds.
Don't be, the spider was found and captured into a jar by a Whole Foods employee and subsequently destroyed? I'm thinking they have really good transit systems in South America, because in fact the banana's were from Honduras, so... well, let's just say you do the math.
Go-o-o employee (perhaps of the month?!) anyway. Good for you. Quick thinking.
No? It wasn't a Brazillian spider? Okay, confusing. But not so much, considering the bananas WERE from Honduras.
