...they can stop you dying from the bite of a Brazilian Wandering Spider, when one sneaks out of a box of bananas.
Matthew Stevens was attacked by the Brazilian Wandering Spider which was hidden in a box of bananas delivered to the Quantock Gateway pub in Bridgwater.

Thinking quickly despite the shock, he managed to snap a picture, which he later showed to doctors.

Experts at Bristol Zoo were able to identify it and suggest an antidote.
The wandering spider is extremely aggressive (and this one was probably very pissed off at Messrs. Ffyffe or Geest).
