Available on iTunes, HISTORY Vault, Prime Video
S2 E17: The movie "Arachnophobia" scared millions with its depiction of giant deadly spiders, but huge arachnids may not be limited to fiction. In 2006 a GI in Iraq was photographed with what appeared to be a three foot long arachnid. Meanwhile in the forests of Peru there are reports of spiders big enough to eat an entire chicken. A MonsterQuest expedition into the wilderness of South America goes on the hunt for a monster-sized predatory spider and examines man's fear of these creatures.
