Asked November 24, 2013, 3:27 PM EST

Does anyone know what spider this is and if it's dangerous or poisonous, my 2yr old daughter found it in some grapes we brought from a supermarket in the UK, it was alive and has an egg sac present, I killed the spider before as it tried to get away.

Expert Response

I can't determine what spider it is from the quality of the picture, but it does not appear to be on of the species of spider we have in Texas whose venom affects humans.
