    10. Ornamental Baboon Tarantula
    The Ornamental baboon tarantula is native to West Africa and mainly found in the areas of Togo and Ghana. Once these spiders are fully grown, which tends to take about three years, they can reach a leg span of about 5 inches (12 cm).
    9. Yellow Sac Spider
    Yellow sac spiders come in many species and are common throughout the U.S., Mexico, and South America. A few species can also be found almost everywhere in the world. They’re pretty small, measuring between 0.12-0.6 inches (3-15mm) long, and are known to frequently make their way into people’s homes.

    8. Black Widow Spider
    The Latrodectus, or black widow genus of spiders consists of several species, who carry a trademark hour-glass shaped mark on their backs and are notorious for their neurotoxin-infused venom. They dwell in temperate regions throughout the world, and apparently they like the same places where grapes usually grow.

    7. Brazilian Wandering Spider
    Also called armed spiders or banana spiders, Brazilian wandering spiders come in eight different species, all of which are found in Brazil, while some also occur in other parts of Latin America. They reach up to two inches (5cm) long, with a leg span of up to six inches (15cm), and are hairy and mostly brown.

    6. Brown Widow Spider
    The brown widow spider was first described based on a specimen discovered in South America, but the species is thought to have evolved in Africa. It exists in other parts of the world, such as southern California, Hawaii, Florida, the Caribbean, Japan, Cyprus, and Australia as an invasive species. This tropical and subtropical species only seems to be spreading, with a more noticeable presence in U.S. Gulf states in recent years.

    Redback spiders are native to Australia and are closely related to black widows. They’re extremely versatile and can survive anywhere outside their indigenous habitat, so long as their basic needs, such as warmth, adequate food, and a sheltered place for a web are available.

    4. Brown Recluse Spider
    Infamous for its venomous and painful bite, the brown recluse spider is common throughout the south and central U.S. Unlike most spiders, who have eight eyes, the brown recluse has six uniquely shaped eyes. The uniformly-colored, velvety species measures just three-eighths of an inch (1 cm) long on average.

    3. Chilean Recluse Spider
    The Chilean recluse spider is native to South America, dwelling primarily in Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay. This species is also sometimes seen in Mexico and the southern U.S. It’s perhaps the most dangerous spider within its genus, despite measuring a mere 0.3-1.2 inches (8-30mm).

    2. Six-Eyed Sand Spider
    The medium-sized six-eyed sand spider dwells in deserts and sandy environments throughout southern Africa. It measures between one and two inches (2.5-5.1 cm) long and has a leg span of around four inches (10.2 cm). This species is related to recluse spiders, which are distributed worldwide, and several African and South American species.

    1. Australian Funnel-Web Spiders
    The Australian funnel-web family of spiders consists of 40 known species and is named after their peculiar tube-shaped webs. While some species are presumed to be harmless, others possess potent and fast-acting venom and rank among the world’s most dangerous spiders.
