Identify Spiders

Spiders (order Araneae) are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs able to inject venom.

Size
 The smallest, Patu digua from Colombia, are less than 0.37 mm in body length. The largest and heaviest spiders occur among tarantulas, which can have body lengths up to 90 mm (3.5 in) and leg spans up to 250 mm.
 
Bites
All symptoms associated with toxic spider bites

Although spiders are widely feared, only a few species are dangerous to people. 

Spiders will only bite humans in self-defense, and few produce worse effects than a mosquito bite or bee sting. Most of those with medically serious bites, such as recluse spiders (genus Loxosceles) and widow spiders (genus Latrodectus), would rather flee and bite only when trapped, although this can easily arise by accident.
