Banana Spiders in Jamaica!
There are NO good reasons why I’m posting this! I just wanted to show you the nastiest display of spiders I’ve ever seen in my life! For those of you who’ve traveled to Africa or Australia you’ll probably laugh at these ones. But back home in Canada I’ve never seen the likes of Banana spiders!

Okay so that’s a banana spider, no biggy even though it’s leg span was pretty much like a child’s hand. But the next picture will show you the BIG problem! Where there’s one banana spider……there’s also his ENTIRE extended family!!!
Whole heap of banana spiders!!!
Spiders are my greatest phobia next to bees and wasps so you can imagine my reaction when I saw the magnitude of this! The security guards at this venue laughed themselves silly at my reactions. Nice that I could be such a spectacle for them LOL!
For all you arachnophobes out there, I will assure you that in twelve trips and seven years I’ve never encountered one of these guys outside a botanical garden. So you don’t need to be scared to come to Jamaica. I’d hate to think my blog post makes tourism decline hahaa.
