The Amazon Giant Fishing Spider
If you’re arachnophobic, then you may want to skip this entry in the article. This is the Amazon giant fishing spider, and it’s earned that name for a reason. It resides near the rivers and lakes of South America because this spider actually goes fishing. It has the size to back it up too, getting as big as 8 inches alone. Instead of spinning a web, they wait by the edges of bodies of water, looking for the telltale ripples of their prey. Once they’re close enough, the spider runs across the water’s surface, grabs its meal, and injects venom right into it.
