After word of the spider drew media attention, the Tulsa Zoo Curator of Aquariums of Herpetology Barry Downer, took a look at video and photos of the arachnid. He concluded that it was misidentified. He believes it was a Huntsman spider, which is harmless to humans.
It's not possible to take a second look at the spider itself. It was destroyed at the urging of a university administrator who was concerned about safety. Downer says it should have been preserved for study.
The spider was found in a shipment of bananas. Store employees were praised for their handling of the situation.
