The Top Ten

1 Brazilian Wandering spider Brazilian Wandering spider

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 No1 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.

Oh wow don't even go to brizil


2 Black Widow spider 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 No2 deadly spider.

Did you make those figures up? How is it the 2nd most deadly spider. No matter which way you bake it, the Black Widow is way down the list. The Brazilian Wandering Spider and Sydney Funnel Web are both another level above the Black Widow. - Christo

It certainly is one of the most famous spider breeds and it's notorious reputation as a poisonous breed certainly makes it worse

The most venomous spider that can hurt us

3 Goliath Birdeater Goliath Birdeater

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.

These guys actually aren't as scary as you might think. And despite their size, they're not known to be that harmful to humans.

They are the size of puppies! What?! No spider should be that big! They also have 2-inch fangs! They aren't poisonous to humans but their buite can hurt us really bad!

4 Sydney Funnel-Web spider

These spiders pack a powerful bite if threatened. DON'T play or try to pick one up. The spider lives in Australia near the east coast in Sydney.

I like spiders and dear god, this is scary. Snake sized fangs, bad temper, and decent intelligence for a spider make this nightmarish.

5 Mouse spider Mouse spider

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

6 Brown Recluse spider Brown Recluse spider

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.

Despite popular belief the chance of dying from a brown recluse bite is smaller than dying from a lightning strike. - MLGPoossySlayer6969

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

7 Giant Huntsman spider 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?! - Nightfire

YAUGH! Spider! -slash with Walhart's wolf berg-
Don't scare me like that - aarond9010

8 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.

They carry their babies on their backs, which makes them very creepy. Their bute is also very painful and causes rashes for some people.

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 Red Knee spider

No these are awesome!

The Contenders

11 Redback spider
12 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 - killerqueen1010
