The deadly mutant animals springing up from the Fukushima disaster now include poisonous spiders hiding in bananas, waiting to bite you and your children during breakfast.
A British family was forced to flee their home today after a horde of deadly mutant spiders suddenly sprang from a wrapped bag of organic bananas, shipped from Brazil. The family’s mother was going to chop some bananas to go with porridge, but as soon as she opened the banana pack she knew something was amiss.
[adsense]Various reports indicate Fukushima water is being used in South American fruits, causing mutations that allow the fruits to grow more vigorously and numerously. The downside is that the normal garden spiders that inhabit banana plants are also mutated by the Fukushima irrigation water, giving rise to the new dangerous Brazilian wandering spider species.
The matriarch of the family, Consi Taylor, was biting into her banana when she noticed a clutch of spiders hiding in the skin. “I thought it was mold at first.” Taylor then noticed the little spots were moving toward her, shooting web toward her from their spinnerets. The quick thinking mother took a picture and sent the photograph to pest control, which warned her the spiders were the new and greatly feared Brazilian spider species.
The spider is to blame for 12 deaths in Brazil over the past few months. The species hides its young in bananas, waiting for a mammal of sorts to come eat the fruit. During consumption, the spider hatchlings that hatch when a banana is ripe quickly run toward the consuming animal, using highly toxic venom to eat through the skin and into the body of the victim. When the venom wears off, the mammal (including human) will wake up with a sore arm, not fully knowing that the spiders are now living with and consuming flesh inside the body.
The spider’s venom can kill within two hours, leaving the host with little moments of consciousness and a chance to seek help.
Fully grown, these Brazilian spiders have a leg span of 6 inches each. The adult spiders typically hide in adjoining bananas, inside the skin, waiting in stalking for any potential predators or to deliver a deadly bite if their hatchlings have any trouble subduing the hapless ‘prey’ who tries to consume the banana.
For the Clayton family, we can see they escaped both the mother and her hatchlings.
Pest control immediately warned the family to flee their home and take nothing with them. The family obeyed and took refuge in a hotel, while pest control was called in to fumigate and battle these new toxic mutant spiders.
By the time animal control reached the home, they already filed a case where dead pet rabbit had been savaged and halfway consumed by the same species of spiders, who had hidden in a banana.
The Clayton family was more fortunate, with all of them able to escape their home and seek refuge without being poison or consumed by the new spider species.
Ms. Taylor gave the following chilling account:
Mrs Taylor said: ‘The pest control people said every living thing in our house is now dead, but I’m still terrified one is still alive.
‘I’d never heard of Brazilian wandering spiders before all this and I can’t imagine what it would be like facing a fully grown one. I was trembling and shaking inside when I found out what they can do to you. We kill every spider we see in the house now.
‘We used to use a postcard and paper cup and carry them outside and put them in the garden, but we’re killing them all now for our safety and sanity.’
