Exotic spider which may have travelled from India found in a fridge in Scotland
It has since been identified as from the wolf spider family
In what must be an arachnophobe's worst nightmare, an exotic spider has made its way into a fridge in Scotland.
Coming from the wolf spider family, it possibly travelled from India in a box of grapes.
David and Beverley Cooper, from Glenrothes, Fife, called the Scottish SPCA when they found the creature lurking on the wall of the fridge.
Staff at Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World are now looking after it.
Kevin Thom, from Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World, said: "This spider isn't deadly but if (someone was) bitten, it would leave a real sting."
