Venomous Six-eyed Sand Spider | 3 May 2009 | The Six-eyed Sand Spider whose binomial is Sicarius hahni means Hahn’s assassin or murderer. It is a medium-sized spider found in deserts and other sandy places in southern Africa and close relatives may be found in both Africa and in South America.

It is also distantly related to the recluses (Loxosceles) which are found worldwide. Studies of its venom have led some to recognize this spider’s bite as the most dangerous on record. (Nino Guevara Ruwano)
