Spiders in England - level 2

Spiders in England - level 2

21-10-2013 14:00

A kind of a poisonous spider has been spreading around England. This type of spider is Britain's most dangerous spider.

There are over 600 kinds of spiders in the UK. Only some of them bite people, and this kind is one of them. The more poison the spider injects, the worse it gets for the person. Some people have an allergic reaction to the poison. A man had a reaction so severe, he nearly lost his leg. For others, the spider is no more dangerous than a bee.

Nobody has died because of this spider. If you see this spider, remove it in a humane way.

Difficult words: poisonous (with something that can kill you), severe (very serious), humane (not cruel).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
