We’ve always been warned to watch for worms in our apples, but it looks like we have a new problem on our hands—spiders in bananas.

A recent video shows that “freshly-sealed fruit” may be a false promise after all.


“I just wanted to eat a banana. When I saw something,” reads the text on the video. The camera then cuts to a normal looking banana that ever-so-slightly begins to wiggle near the base, like a fish with its head cut off.

Seconds later, signs of something pushing against the skin from the inside appear. The skin punctures, the tiny hole starts to widen, and out pops a spider, flailing its legs wildly like a newborn.

We’re praying that this is some highly-skilled post-production at play here.
