NOTE: Spiders has been split into 2 pages because of the great N° of animations. You’ll find the links to the other pages & other animations in this series in the table near the bottom of the page. On page 2 you’ll find the links to the Big & XL animations.

It is hard to define which spider in the world is the most dangerous to humans. Several spiders could qualify, depending on what you mean by dangerous. If you mean the spider with the most toxic venom, measured by its effect on newborn mice or other mammals? Or do you mean the spider that has caused the death of the most people? Those that have the strongest venom may not be encountered by humans very often, or may even have trouble piercing human skin and so are not considered to be ‘dangerous’. Data are usually only kept on bites from spiders that are potentially deadly or cause severe reactions bit this data is not recorded consistently at a national or international level. Here, we will define dangerous as ‘deadly’.

The Australian Funnel-Web Spiders are among the deadliest spiders in the world in the effect their bites have on humans and our primate relations (although the bite has little effect on dogs and cats). There are many species of Funnel-Web Spiders in Australia but only male Sydney Funnel-Webs have caused human deaths, but there have been no deaths from a confirmed spider bite since 1979 in Australia. An effective antivenom for Redback Spiders was introduced in 1956 with one for Funnel-Web Spiders in 1980. These are the only two spiders that are know to have caused deaths in Australia in the past.

There have been only 13 deaths recorded from male Sydney Funnel-Webs, but up to 30-40 people are bitten by Funnel-Web Spiders each year. Mouse Spiders may have venom that is as toxic as that of some Funnel-Webs, as some people have had severe reactions to their bites, although no-one has been recorded as having died from the effects of a Mouse Spider bite.

A group of spiders that is dangerous in many countries belongs to the genus Latrodectus in the family Theridiidae. In Australia we have the Redback Spider (Latrodectus hasselti). In America, a common representative of this genus is the Black Widow (Latrodectus mactans).

A deadly spider which comes from South America is the Banana Spider, Phoneutria species. In south-eastern Brazil between 1970 and 1980, more than 7,000 people were admitted to hospital with bites from this spider. An antivenom now also exists for this species.

The Brown Recluse Spider or Fiddleback Spider is a deadly spider belonging to the genus Loxosceles. Recluse spiders are found in many parts of the world and has been introduced into Australia. The venom of this spider can cause severe skin necrosis (eating away of the flesh) and can be fatal although not many deaths have been recorded.

A spider bite is not a notifiable medical emergency, so there are no Australia-wide statistics, but the following figures give an idea of the incidence of reported bites in recent years. Approximately 2,000 people are bitten each year by Redback Spiders

Every spider web is unique.
