Worlds deadliest spider found in Tulsa grocery store

An employee of Whole Foods in Tulsa, Oklahoma found a very deadly spider in the bananas.

The spider was given to University of Tulsa Animal Facilities director Terry Childs who said this type of spider kills more people than any other.

Childs said a bite will kill a person in about 25 minutes and while there is an antidote he doesn't know of any in the Tulsa area.

Spiders often are found in imported produce, and a manager at Whole Foods says the store regularly checks its goods and that's how the spider was found.

I'm glad that worker didn't get bitten. I bet he felt lucky after he found out what kind they were.
