A resident of northern London was shocked when he found an unusual spider in a bunch of bananas. The man from Brent called the RSPCA on Tuesday. He said that when he had already started eating bananas, he saw a spider 5 cm long there.
At this time, it was not identified what species it is, but it was found out that bananas came there from Colombia. The RSPCA worker, Jill Sanders, took the spider and placed it in the Heathrow Animal Reception Center. She said: "This spider is bright orange or yellow color, and that is exactly why it perfectly fades into bananas that serve it as a home."
Susie Pritchard from Heathrow Animal Reception Center noted: "We have not yet indentified the species of this spider, but it is no surprise that it was hiding in bananas. Spiders, that were found in bananas, are often brought to us. The spider will be put in a container in our vivarium, where we keep other animals and insects. It will be there until a fan of spiders shows up and takes it. Or the spider will spend the rest of its life with us."
