deadly spider found in US

Three women in North Florida , turned up at hospitals over a 5-day period, all with
the same symptoms. Fever, chills, and vomiting, followed by muscular collapse,
paralysis, and finally, death.

There were no outward signs of trauma. Autopsy results showed toxicity in the

These women did not know each other, and seemed to have nothing in common

It was discover ed, however, that they had all visited the same restaurant
(Olive Garden) within days of their deaths. The health department descended on
the restaurant, shutting it down. The food, water, and air conditioning were
all inspected and tested, to no avail.

The big break came when a waitress at the restaurant was rushed to the hospital
with similar symptoms . She told doctors that she had been on vacation, and had
only went to the restaurant to pick up her check.

She did not eat or drink while she was there, but had used the restroom.

That is when one toxicologist, remembering an artic le he had read, drove out to
the restaurant, went into the restroom, and lifted the toilet seat.. Under the
seat, out of normal view, was a small spider.

The spider was captured and brought back to the lab, where it was determined to
be the Two-Striped Telamonia (Telamonia dimidiata ), so named because of its
reddened flesh color. This spider's venom is extremely toxic, but can take
several days to take effect. They live in cold, dark, damp climates, and toilet
rims provide just the right atmosphere.

Several days later a lawyer from Jacksonville showed up at a hospital emergency room. Before his
death, he told the doctor, that he had been away on business, had taken a
flight from Indonesia , changing planes in Singapore
, before returning home. He did not visit (Olive Garden), while there. He did,
as did all of the other victims, have what was determined to be a puncture
wound, on his right buttock.

Investigators discovered that the flight he was on had originated in India

The Civilian Aer onautics Board (CAB) ordered an immediate inspection of the
toilets of all flights from India , and discovered the Two-Striped Telamonia spider's
nests on 4 different planes!

It is now believed th at these spiders can be anywhere in the country.

So please, before you use a public toilet, lift the seat to check for spiders.
It can save your life!
