Spiders live everywhere, you can come across them at wilderness as well as at your own house. It is important to know about the most dangerous spiders in the world. Read about 5 most deadly spiders in the world in the following article:

They are highly poisonous to the humans and are considered as deadliest of all the spiders. Their venom directly affects the nervous system and causes salivation, irregular heartbeat, and priapism in men. These spiders are active hunters and they travel a lot. They hide in the comfortable places at night and sometimes crawl into the fruits or flowers. Brazilian wandering spider attacks only when it is alarmed and it generally delivers dry bites means bites without venom. It delivers venom bites only when it is hurt or pressed against human skin.

These spiders generally reside in woodpiles, burrows, and among plants. The female black widow spider is shiny black and has a reddish yellow underside of their abdomen. The male spiders are one-fourth size of the female and they are rarely seen because female spider generally kills and eat them after mating. Male spiders have pairs of red and white stripes on the sides of the abdomen in addition to hourglass design.

You will find one or more red spots on the upper or lower side of their abdomen. In some spiders, they take the shape of an hourglass or just look like several dots in a row. The male spiders are smaller and less dangerous than female spiders.

Sydney funnels web spider: this spider is an Australian native spider that is 1 to 3 inches long and very aggressive when provoked. They got their name due to their funnel-shaped webs.
