Venomous Spider creeps across Britain
Although some believe that it is one of the most deadly creatures known to man, Matthew Chatfield, owner of the Naturenet blog, comments, "For almost everyone, the effect of a spider bite in this country is an itchy lump for a day or so at worst. So actually, there's almost no evidence of Steatoda nobilis or any other U.K. spider causing anything more than temporary discomfort to anyone. Steatoda may well be the U.K.'s most dangerous spider, but that position is only slightly more odious than being the U.K.'s most dangerous kitten."
