BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER "Bite" Nearly Blinds Texas Christian University Student

BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER "Bite" Nearly Blinds Texas Christian University Student

The Brown Recluse spider is one of the most deadly spiders in North America. If you don’t believe it, look at what happened to Texas Christian University student Nikki Perez, who was bitten by the Loxosceles reclusa last September.

Perez nearly went blind from the bite and her ear started to rot.

The Daily Mail reports that Perez was bitten by a brown recluse spider while waiting for a plane at the Amarillo Airport in Texas with her boyfriend Eric. Perez said:

“I felt a nasty pinch when I touched my neck… Next, I felt something crawling over my face and over my eye. I yelled for Eric to help me, and when he saw the spider crawling over my face, he swatted it to the floor, and stamped on it.”

Janet Kempf, an arachnologist with the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, said:

“A bite from a brown recluse can be deadly… They also cause a wide range of debilitating symptoms from vomiting to rashes and in some cases, a lesion that can become necrotic, or rotten, and has to be removed.”

Perez picked up the dead spider and wrapped it in tissue so that she could show the doctors what bit her. A spider bite expert was on duty at the hospital and immediately identified the spider. Unfortunately, Perez was told that there was little that they could do but wait to see if necrosis set in, which it did, about two weeks later.

Perez said:

“My ear basically started to rot’ right on schedule with the doctor’s predictions… Then it started spreading to my other eye. I was going blind…it was terrifying. It was spreading all over my head, which actually felt like a bit of a relief as the pain was so concentrated behind my ear.”

Perez spent five days in the hospital hooked up to an IV. When she was discharged she had to wear a special helmet and eventually needed a skin graft to repair her ear.

The story of Nikki Perez comes just a few days after a report by Kansas University researcher Erin Saupe, who predicts that the brown recluse spider will start migrating north due to global warming. The spider, which is typically found in the Southeast, could soon be found in northern states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New York.

Cat sized Rats Invade FLORIDA!

Giant rats are running wild in the Florida Keys!

The voracious rats first appeared in 1999 after they escaped from a local exotic pets breeder – and they’ve been multiplying like crazy and getting bigger and bigger – and bigger.


These adult rats can reach nineteen pounds.

These giant Gambian pouch rats are everywhere on Florida’s Grassy Key despite concerted efforts by conservation officials to eradicate them.

Officials worry that the voracious rats, which grow to nineteen pounds, might wipe out some crops and upset the delicate ecological balance if they manage to reach the Florida mainland.

And citizens are running scared.  ”They are ferocious.  I’d rather face a lion,” said Jeb Markham of Key West.

South Florida has become a virtual dumping ground for exotic animals from across the globe – and the gigantic rats love eating them all.

The area is teeming with exotic animals like Burmese pythons, boa constrictors, Nile monitor lizards, vervet monkeys and more–all wreaking havoc on local animal species.

“We thought we had them whipped as of 2009,” Scott Hardin, exotic-species coordinator for the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said.  But now… there’s no hope. They are taking over the Keys.

“In the early part of 2011, a resident e-mailed me and said he saw one of the rats. We were skeptical but went back and talked to people and [saw] there were giant rats that we missed,” he added.

After four female rats were found in 2011, officials launched another effort to kill them in November and December, primarily through the use of poison-laced cantaloupe and peanut butter.

According to the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the rats primarily eat fruit and grains but have been know to also eat insects, crabs and snails,  and now… humans.

The rodent’s distinctive features include a long, mostly hairless tail that typically measures between 24 and 36 inches. And their teeth are razor sharp.
