WASHINGTON — A Brazilian spider delivers more than a painful bite that sends most victims to the hospital.
Its venom stimulates an hours-long erection. Now scientists have figured out the chemical that seems to be responsible for the penis boost.
In Brazil, emergency room staff can immediately spot the victims of a bite from the Brazilian wandering spider (Phoneutria nigriventer).
