There are hundreds of species of spiders on the planet. Most of them thrive in rainforests, savannahs, and other places where humidity and warmth are prevalent. Wherever they live, most of us are scared of them.

Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders, is one of the most common phobias in the world, and with reason. An adventurer can be mortally wounded by a spider if he tangles with the wrong species.

If you see any of these spiders, go the other way.
