A banana shipment recently came into my store and we found a striped spider hanging out inside the box. It's about the size of a quarter. The bananas that are shipped are Del Monte, I believe from Guatemala. I currently have the spider in my house in a jar. Any help would be appreciated but I mostly want to find out because I'm a bit concerned about future banana shipments.

You're right. It looks more so like a wolf than the wandering Brazilian. I'm relieved but the thing is still venomous.
