Scientist Stumbles Upon The World's Largest Spider.
A scientist strolling along the Guyana rain forest stumbled upon a furry Goliath Birdeater Spider which according to the Guinness World Book of Records, is the world's largest spider. The spider can weigh up to 6 ounces or as much as a young puppy according to Scientist Piotr Naskrecki. The spider's fangs are two inches long and though they won't kill you but their bite feels like driving a nail through ones hand.
