This is the giant venomous spider which leapt out of an eco worker's backpack when she returned to London from a charity trip to the jungle in Cameroon.

Nora Serrat, 32, found a Huntsman spider - known for preying on bats - on her return from a two week work project in the west African country.

Cool. I'm impressed they caught it and brought it to a zoo, instead of just killing it like most people would.

It would have been confronted with high-powered firearms and fire around here.  Lots of fire.  Spiders are spawn of evil.

I remember playing the first Resident Evil on Playstation, and walking in a room with giant Spiders that gave me a shock.

As far as I know all true spiders are venomous, but not all are dangerously so. We have huntsman spiders where I live, with legs extended they are the size of you palm, but I have never heard of anyone being bitten, much less being harmed. I did look the local species up however and it says they can bite and it can be painful but not dangerous, unless perhaps you are allergic. I will say they are one the fastest spiders I have ever seen and it can be unnerving to see one run across the wall or ceiling!
