Misumena vatia Misumena vatia Misumena vatia Misumena vatia Misumena vatiaShe lay in wait and she pounced on me!

I know that people have phobias about spiders but you are pretty safe around them. Hardly any UK spiders have jaws powerful enough to pierce human skin. I would like to tell you that there were none but the Natural History Museum has a little list of case histories.
