“Spider-Man” tries to smuggle 1000 spiders from Brazil

Posted on: November 26, 2009

Talk about an exotic holiday souvenir – who the hell would pack 1000 Brazilian spiders in their suitcase?! A British would-be spider smuggler was apprenhended at Rio de Janiero airport after security X-Rays revealed 1000 live spiders in his luggage.


Firstly, how the hell would he have got the spiders in there? They must have hatched in the suitcase – gross! And secondly, why bother? Who would want to buy a, probably poisonous, spider. Imagine the security guys who saw all those creepy spiders running around! Oh god, it’s making my skin crawl just writing about it!

Now I’ve been to th Brazilian rainforest, and the spiders there are not the kind you want anywhere near you, let alone in your suitcase! I hope the “Spider-man” had secured the luggage properly incase one of the little blighters escaped. Who knows if they’re poisonous or not – I just hope he was completely brushed up on his first aid training!

The guy has been released on bail, but could face a year in prison and a fine of up to 2.3 million dollars.
