#5 - The Six-Eyed Sand Spider
The Six-Eyed Sand Spider is a medium-sized spider with body measuring 1 to 2 inches and legs spanning up to 4 inches. It is found in deserts and other sandy places in southern Africa with close relatives found in both Africa and in South America. The Six-Eyed Sand Spider is a cousin to the Recluses which are found worldwide. Due to its flattened stance, it is also sometimes known as the Six-Eyed Crab Spider. Bites by this spider to humans are uncommon, but have been experimentally shown as lethal to rabbits within 5 to 12 hours.
