Believe It Or Not Creepy Spider Facts

October 31, 2012


You may be noticing more spiders around your home this fall. We’re willing to bet these fun facts are enough to make your skin crawl! Muahahahaha!!! (<- Insert evil laugh here.)

  • All spiders are venomous (but not all are dangerous to humans.)

  • There are approximately 34,000 species of spiders on Earth – only 27 of which are known to kill humans with their bite!

  • A single spider can eat over 2,000 bugs per year!

  • Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders, is the most common phobia and affects more women than men.

  • The largest spider in the world, in terms of mass, is the Goliath Birdeater Tarantula (though they don’t normally eat birds.) Goliaths can be over a foot wide, weigh more than 6 oz., and have fangs over an inch long!

  • For its weight, spider web silk is actually stronger and tougher than steel!

  • Female Australian crab spiders are known to sacrifice their bodies as food to feed their offspring!

  • Cooked spiders, enjoyed in many parts of the world, are said to taste like peanut butter!
