The Top Ten
1 Brazilian Wandering Spider Known for its aggressive behavior and potent venom, the Brazilian Wandering Spider is native to tropical South America. Unlike most spiders that build webs, it roams the forest floor in search of prey. It is considered one of the most venomous spiders in the world.

Be careful before walking in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. You might see these large spiders in the forest. Unfortunately, they are very deadly resulting in a powerful bite. If left untreated, the venom will kill a adult human. The venom will automatically kill a mouse. It is the No. 1 deadly spider in the world.

This is a spider to be scared of. It is highly aggressive and super poisonous. In fact, in 2010, the Guinness Book of World Records named it the deadliest spider in the world.

I hate spiders, all spiders. But according to information in comments, it seems this is the most deadly spider!

2 Black Widow Spider

These spiders are black with a red hourglass printed on it's back. If accidentally touched or sat on, they will bite. The bite is 15 times more powerful than a rattlesnake bite. That's why you need immediate medical care. It is the No. 2 deadly spider.

Black widows are a scary spider. A black widows bite possibly can kill someone! I'm not saying the bite WILL kill someone.

Just think of the song... Think of the song... Think of the song by Iggy...

3 Wolf Spider

It might be large, but the wolf spider can bite, causing pain, stings, and redness to the area. Rarely, they cause powerful bites depending on the species.

Because they look very scary and are the best scariest spiders in my family but my brother and my mum and me .me and my brother don't like spiders but my mum does

4 Mouse Spider A funnel-web spider native to Australia, the Mouse Spider is known for its burrowing behavior and venom potency, similar to that of the Sydney Funnel-web spider. It is generally black or dark blue and features large fangs used for subduing prey.

The mouse spider lives in Australia. They can cause serious symptoms if touched or threatened. It's bite is powerful and threatening.

It looks quite scary but it looks like it might have a threatening and poisonous bite that might kill you if you pester it.

5 Sydney Funnel-Web Spider

The Sydney Funnel Web Spider is much more defensive than the Brazilian Wandering Spider (look at the videos and tell me which one is more aggressive). With long fangs than can pierce a toenail, drip extremely toxic venom and strike repeatedly down, this is a scary spider. The SFW also rarely dry bites, meaning that each time they bite, they almost certainly inject venom. The BWS does frequently dry bite however. The SFW also has a tendency to wander into people's houses, hiding in shoes. They don't appreciate you trying to put your foot into the shoe when they are in there either. Once again, watch the videos.

Size, hairiness and habitat aside, the SFW's venom (atrotoxin) affects primates (I.e. humans) significantly more than the BWS's venom (neurotoxin). The BSW earned it's reputation primarily based on Guinness World Records LD50 measurement of how much venom is required to kill a test population of mice. We are not mice.

The facts also suggest that the SFW has killed more people than the BWS has, despite Brazil being a more densely populated country than Australia.

Oh and the other spiders don't even come close to being as scary. The Black Widow? Please... it's a kitten compared to the SFW.

6 Goliath Birdeater The Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi) belongs to the tarantula family Theraphosidae. Found in northern South America, it is the largest spider in the world by mass and size, but it is second to the giant huntsman spider by leg span.

Now we're talking! It is normal to be scared and terrified of this spider because leg spans can increase from 25 to 30cm. It is the largest spider and tarantula in the world and lives in Northern Brazil near the Amazon rainforest. However if threatened, the spider will bite but hardly cause any pain.

I have a serious fear of spiders...And I learned this one can grow as big as a dinner plate.

7 Red Knee Spider
8 Brown Recluse Spider A venomous spider native to the central and southern United States, the Brown Recluse is known for its reclusive habits and preference for dark, undisturbed places. Its venom can cause necrotic skin lesions in humans, making it a species to be cautious of when encountered.

I actually love spiders I have a curly haired tarantula rn and also a brown recluse. spiders can be really interesting and fun to learn about now I wont recommend holding one but they can be amazing spiders as pets

The Brown Recluse spider originates from the southern states. Like the black widow, if accidentally touched or sat on, it will bite, but the venom is less powerful. The spider is quite big. Often, the spider lives in the basement or behind dusty wardrobes.

First thought that entered my head: OH MY GOD... This this is freaky..

9 Mystery Spider

This Indian spider can be deadly. Depending on the bite, it can cause extreme pain, swelling and redness for more than 24 hours so don't touch one.

10 Jumping Spider A member of the Salticidae family, the Jumping Spider is known for its exceptional vision and leaping ability. These spiders are active predators and hunt during the day. Their varied diet includes insects and other spiders.

This is actually one of the prettiest spiders I have ever seen. I need to draw this

The Contenders
11 Giant Huntsman Spider

This spider has the largest leg span in the world. No wonder it is so scary! It can have spans of up to 35cm making it the largest leg spanned spider ever. Don't try to disturb it otherwise it will bite. Often the spider will give a warning before biting.

Aren't these the spiders I see on YouTube that are the size of dinner plates and jump in Austrailia?!

12 Funnel Web Spider
13 Camel Spider

This is the fastest spider in the world with top speeds up to 10mph. If it bites it causes wounds and moderate bleeding causing scars lasting up to 4 weeks.

The Camel Spider is creepy and very poisonous, but it's not actually a spider. It's more of a close cousin.

Google image search this thing right now and tell me a Black Widow is scarier... I live among these beasts. They are sooo scary

14 Redback Spider
15 Scorpion-Tailed Spider
16 Ogre-Faced Spider

17 Giant House Spider
18 Six Eyed Sand Spider
19 Orb-Weaver Spider
