False widow spider

Venomous Spider creeps across Britain

The venomous arachnid spreading throughout Britain called the "false widow spider" is giving the entire country a case of the heebie-jeebies.  The false widow spider (Steatoda nobilis) is a native of Spain's Canary Islands and is widely believed to have spread to Europe and the British Isles through shipments of bananas largely due to a warming climate.  The largest false widow spider detected up to this point is no more than a half inch across.  Both male and female spiders have marbled markings on their abdomens that some observers have called a skull mark.

Spider fighting a wasp

So, You're Afraid of Spiders?

This lucky little guy has been paralyzed and is about to be drug down a hole to have a wasp egg implanted in him that will hatch and feed on his still-living body until only his heart and central nervous system remain.  You don't know what fear is.
