Telamonia dimidiata spider hoax.

Thanks for your concerns all my friends but I’m getting quite sick of these things getting passed around without you guys going around the net to find out what’s the real truth. I’ll tell you that this stupid hoax is fake. Please read to find out more. I did some search around google and this is what I found out from snoopes.com

The Story:

Important Information

Three women in North Florida turned up at hospitals over

a 5-day period, all with the same symptoms.

Fever, chills, and vomiting, followed by muscular collapse,

paralysis and finally, death.

There were no outward

signs of trauma.

Autopsy results showed toxicity in the blood. These women did not know each other and seemed to have nothing in common. It was discovered, however, that they had all visited the
same Restaurant (Olive Garden) within days of their deaths. The Health Department descended on the restaurant , shutting it down. The food, water, and air conditioning were all inspected and tested, to no avail.

The big break came when a waitress at the restaurant was rushed to the hospital with similar symptoms. She told doctors that she had been on vacation, and had only went to the restaurant to pick up her check..

She did not eat or drink while she was there, but had used the restroom.

That is when one toxicologist, remembering an article he had read, drove out to the restaurant, went into the restroom and lifted the toilet seat .

Under the seat, out of normal view , was a small spider. The spider was captured and brought back to the lab, where it was determined to be the Two-Striped Telamonia (Telamonia dimidiata), so named because of its reddened flesh color.&nb sp; This spider’s venom is extremely toxic, but can take several days to take effect. They live in cold, dark,
damp climates, and toilet rims provide just the right atmosphere.

Several days later a lawyer from Jacksonville showed up at a hospital emergency room. Before his death, he told the doctor, that he had been away on business, had taken a flight from Indonesia , changing planes in Singapore , before returning home. He did NOT visit (Olive Garden),
while there. He did (as did all of the other victims) have what was determined to be a puncture wound. Investigators discovered that the flight he was on had originated in India .

The Civilian Aeronautics B oard (CAB) ordered an
immediate inspection of the toilets of all flights from India and discovered the Two-Striped Telamonia (Telamonia dimidiata) spider’s nests on 4 different planes!

It is now believed that these spiders can be anywhere in the country.

So please, before you use a public toilet, lift the seat to check for spiders…… It can save your life!

And please pass this on to everyone you care about.


The Truth:

No one has been bitten by ‘blush spiders’ lurking around the airport toilet seat.Although some spiders DO prefer dark,cool place such as under the toilet seat(mostly outdoors) but as for an airline toilet seat,it would less likely happen because of the chemicals used in them.Of all the precaution you would like to take, give less priority to checking spiders because it would likely happen.
