Brown Recluse Spiders are sometimes called
fiddleback or violin spiders because of a violin shaped marking on the top of their
cephalothorax, which is a fused head and thorax. They have six eyes instead of eight like most
spiders.However, for being a small spider they can pack a powerful bite. Luckily, 90
percent of bites don’t require medical attention and usually don’t scar. however, studies
have shown the bite can lead to necrosis. In other cases, the victim suffers organ damage
and even death. You will often find the Brown Recluse hiding
in undisturbed wood piles or old buildings, but luckily, this is not an aggressive spider.
The Chilean Recluse originates from South America, but it has now spread to Europe,
North America and Australia. Considered the deadliest of the Recluse spiders, the Chilean
Recluse prefers to remain in undisturbed areas like wood piles and sheds just like the brown
Recluse Spider. Normally, the bites occur as a result of accidental
contact, and its bite has been described as a drawn out cigarette burn. One in 10 people
will die from the Chilean Recluse’s bite. Most will suffer from severe pain, and necrosis
is not uncommon, and it can take months of healing.
The Northern Funnelweb can be found in New South
Wales and Queensland . The funnel web spiders get their names because of the distinctive
style in which they build their webs . The spider waits in the funnel until prey lands
on it and then springs out, and drags the prey down A larger spider that exposes its
fangs dripping with venom when threatened, most people bitten will display severe symptoms
of poisoning. The lucky few will only experience nausea,
muscle spasms and vomiting as well as pain. More commonly, people will drool, they’ll
see double, they will have a hard time swallowing and they will have difficulty breathing.
A bite from the Northern Funnelweb can even send you into a coma. The faster you are treated
with antivenin, the better off you will be. One of the most notorious spiders is the Black
Widow Spider. They are found in the United States, South America, Africa, southern Europe
and Asia, and Australia. Most of the time people who are bitten by
Black Widow Spiders don’t suffer any serious symptoms. However, according to National Geographic,
their venom is 15 times stronger than a rattlesnake, so if they bite and inject a lot of venom,
then the person could be in a lot of trouble. At first , the person will feel a sharp pain
at the area of the bite, like a pinprick. The bite area will redden and swell. Then,
as early as 15 minutes after the bite, pain will spread throughout the body, especially
in the chest and abdomen. The muscles in those areas will start to cramp because of severe
spasms. This may lead to difficulty in breathing because the diaphragm can become paralyzed
. There have been cases of death with small children and the elderly, but the Black Widow
bite rarely kills A spider that grows around five centimeters,
it lives in the sandy areas and deserts of Africa. Like camels, the Sand Spider can go
a long time before it needs water or food—in fact, some researchers suggest up to a year.
It is amusing to watch it bury itself in the ground, but when it bites, this hemolytic-necrotoxic
toxin will thin the blood and destroy tissues.Shortly after being bitten, hemorrhaging will start
and the toxin spreads to the kidneys and liver, leading to death.
It also causes blood vessels to rupture, and the worst part is, no anti-venom exists to
stop it. Fortunately, Six-Eyed Sand Spiders are shy and there are no recorded fatalities
because of it. they are predominantly found in Brazil, with
a few species spread out across Latin America. They are some of the most aggressive spiders
in the world. However, they are not aggressive towards humans
Most of the time spiders bite humans because they feel trapped and/or cornered.After a
bite, the person may experience a burning sensation in the area of the bite, along with
goosebumps and sweats. About 30 minutes later, the person’s blood pressure may increase
or decrease. Nausea, abdominal cramping, blurred vision, hypothermia, vertigo, and excessive
sweating are also symptoms of a bite from a Brazilian Wandering Spider.
The good news is that in most cases, the Brazilian Wandering Spider doesn’t secrete enough
venom in a bite to cause serious damage However, it is still important to seek medical
attention after a bite because 10 recorded deaths have been contributed to the spider.
One of the most dangerous of the Funnel-Web Spiders is the Sydney Funnel-Web Spider, specially
the males. They are generally found within a 62 mile radius of Sydney.
Sydney Funnel-Web Spider venom is some of the most dangerous in the world. In fact,
if it were to bite you in your chest, it could kill you in 15 minutes. However, most of the
time people are bitten on their limbs. What happens when you first get bit is that
it will be extremely painful because the Sydney Funnel-Wed Spider has long fangs and the venom
has a high pH level. After the bite, the person may start drooling because they have numbness
around the mouth and excess saliva. They may also have a copious amount of tears. Soon
they will have problems breathing and may lose consciousness.
The good news is that there is an antivenom, which was developed in 1981, but it is responsible
for 13 recorded deaths.
