These 12 Biggest Spiders are What Nightmares are Made of

Cerbalus Aravensis

This spider is relatively small compared with other spiders on this list, but it is still huge at 5.5 inches. It usually lives underground, and only comes out if there is an unsuspecting prey. They are usually found at Israeli sand dunes at night, hunting for food. Unless you live in that area, you won’t encounter this spider any time soon.
