Scientists in Mexico have discovered a new species of extremely dangerous spider. His poison, which penetrates the human body, destroys tissue, wrote the server weekly Focus. Spider experts named it Loxosceles tenochtitlan.
The spider is not deadly toxic, but a single bite can have devastating consequences for humans. A strong poison destroys the tissue and the skin literally rots after being attacked by a spider. The wound may heal for several months and the affected person may remain a permanent scar.
Alejandro Valdez-Mondragón of the University of Mexico City warned that the spider would attack people when they feel threatened. They usually hide in holes between objects, furniture, or walls. Females are twice as toxic as males.
They can be more dangerous during the rainy season because males look for females at night and can hide in cloths, sheets or shoes.
The emergence of a new species of spider is currently limited to Mexico. In Central European conditions we should not encounter this species.
