Someone I know from some social medium said the other day that if all Holland's spiders ate humans instead of insects, they would eat the Dutch in three days.*

Someone else said the BBC did a piece on razor-footed spiders.

A better journalist than me would check my sources. All I really want to say is that for truly amazing news of the world of creepy-crawlies, spend twenty minutes listening to this Radio Lab about imperial ant wars.

* I originally forgot to include the word 'spiders' in paragraph one, hence Matthew's very sensible question in the comments. I did it to frighten people or because I am a moron.
