This is a Dutch video about the South American spider who survived fourteen days in a refrigerator for bananas.
Translated from Brabants Dagblad in the Netherlands:
Poisonous spider discovered in banana box
In the box was also a big web with [nearly a 100] eggs, which are hatching now. The Phoneutria is about two years old and about 14 cm in size.
