An Austrian supermarket was forced to close after a highly venomous spider was spotted.
The eight-legged critter in question was a Brazilian wandering spider – a species that can cause discomfort, death and unwanted erections.
The four-inch black and red spider apparently popped up at the Penny supermarket in Krems an der Donau, which is about 45 miles west of Vienna.

Worried shop workers called authorities, but it is believed they failed to find the spider meaning that the store has been forced to remain closed.
It is thought that the beast had been hiding in bunches of bananas.
The Daily Star previously reported that a man was left traumatised after being bitten by one of the spiders.
Ronald, from Peru, opened up about how he was left with a two-day erection when the angry arachnid bit him.
He said: "I felt two pinching sensations on my middle fingertip. One on either side. I immediately felt quite a bit of pain, and the other guys working with me started laughing because they thought I was just joking.
"The moment I pulled my hand back, the spider was still very much clasped onto my finger.
"When I shook it off of me and it fell on the floor, that's when we all realised it was an extremely venomous spider."
Ronald said the symptoms kicked in almost immediately, and that after 20 minutes his hand was swollen massively. The veins up his arms became more visible and he started having cold sweats, his heart pounding out of his chest.

He then also experienced a long-lasting problem in his pants as he said his penis stayed erect for a whole two days.
The Brazilian wandering spider is featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most venomous arachnid.
In addition to unwanted erections, its bite can also cause hypothermia, blurred vision and convulsions.
