    It's one of the world's most aggressive and dangerous spiders. Its bite can lead to pain, paralysis and even death. And having shut down a local supermarket, the arachnid may be wandering the streets of Bexbach, Germany.

    While unpacking a crate of bananas, a supermarket employee was shocked to see a spider emerge from the box and scuttle under a shelf. Upon scouring the Internet for pictures of the creature, the employee reported that he had seen a Brazilian Wandering Spider -- one of the most dangerous spiders in the world.

    If you ever want to see a 300lb. man run from a room screaming like a little girl at a Justin Bieber concert, put me in the same room with this creature.

    We actually got one in a box of Bananas here in our store. It was drowgy from the gases they flush the bananas with, but still alive.

    Its more common then you think that these things hitchhike in banana boxes. They hide in the bunches in the wild waiting for prey, and as a result. They tend to get boxed up and shipped with them.

    Usually they die from ether the gas flush, or the cold shipping rooms, but occasionally one does survive.

    Simple rule, squish don't touch.

    You gotta love the photo's caption:

    For some insects the bite is worse than the bark.
    Someone failed biology class I think.

    This 190lb guy would be a few steps ahead of you.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
