10 Of The Most Terrifying Spiders In The World

Animals, Lists, Nature, Shocking

Spiders are the number one most righteous fear in the entire world. More people suffer from arachnophobia – the fear of spiders – than any other phobia to have ever existed. The people suffering from this fear are absolutely brilliant, as these little eight-legged devils are the worst creatures to have ever been spawned from the bowels of the planet. These creepy looking creatures look like they are from a horror movie, and some may not hurt you, but others will kill you without a problem. Here are the ten most terrifying spiders in the world.

Tube Dwelling Spider

The Tube Dwelling Spider has a pair of ferocious looking legs that point towards their forefront, unlike the majority of spider species. Scientists don’t know why these little beasts live in tubes, but they sure do love it down there.


The Gradungulidae is a massive behemoth of a spider that is known to weave some of the most complicated webs in the world. They are seriously some of the smartest spiders in the world, and are big enough to leave an impression.

Trapdoor Spider

The Trapdoor Spider is one of the sneakiest species of spiders, as they line their burrows with webbing to capture everything that is stupid enough to come close. The front of their home is covered in dirt, and they await their prey near the surface.

Spruce-Fir Moss Spider

The Spruce-fir Moss Spider are only found throughout North Carolina and Tennessee, and are known for hiding under the rocks and leaves in the area. They are an endangered species, but no one is complaining about that, as they are truly terrifying.

Triangulate Cobweb Spider

While the Triangulate Cobweb Spider is not dangerous whatsoever, they are the little critter known for leaving cobwebs in homes and hallways. When you run into a spider web line, this is what created it.

Sydney Funnel-Web Spider

The Sydney Funnel-Web Spider is, thankfully, only located within Australia. A single bite from a male of the species has been known to be fatal in a grown human being, so watch for them in your home.

Brazilian Wandering Spider

The Brazilian Wandering Spider is another terrifyingly large spider with a fatal bite. The species is known for being highly aggressive, and they have no problem chasing down and attacking prey much larger than them – including humans.

Goliath Birdeater Tarantula

The Goliath Birdeater Tarantula may not be lethal to human beings, but that doesn’t change the simple fact that they are huge, gross, and just a tad bit scary. This spider is the biggest and heaviest in the entire world.

Golden Silk Orb-Weaver

The Golden Silk Orb-Weaver is a bit of ass in terms of spiders, as they build their complicated, sticky webs right at eye-level for most people. Thankfully, their bite is not lethal to a human being, but it still sucks to get one in your face.

Giant Camel Spider

Those brave enough to watch a spider video or two have probably witness the atrocity that is the Giant Camel Spider. Soldiers living and fighting in Iraq have come across these giants, which can run up to ten miles an hour.
