anti-venom dosesEven after bitten by the world’s deadliest spider, a 10-year-old Australian boy has survived, Bernama News said citing local media. Australia’s funnel web spider is known to have the most deadly venom in the world which can kill anyone in just 15 minutes. The fierce creature is known to hide in the shoes of Aussies.


New South Wales boy Matthew Mitchell got bitten on the finger as he was putting on his sneakers where the spider was hiding. After being rushed to hospital, medical staff administered the boy with 12 vials of antivenom, an all time Australian record.


“I’ve never heard of it, it’s incredible! To walk out of hospital a day later with no effects is a testament to the antivenom,” Australian Reptile Park general manager, Tim Faulkner told Australian media.


The very spider responsible for the bite is now with the reptile park.
