A baboon tarantula loose on a Delta plane caused a three hour flight delay in Baltimore on Wednesday that ended when the airline brought in another aircraft to fly passengers to Atlanta.
According to Delta, the spider had escaped from a cargo container. The spider was eventually found and had never made it into the passenger cabin.
"Safety and security are our top priority," the Delta spokesperson told The Baltimore Sun.
According to Wikipedia, "most baboon spiders are not considered dangerous to humans."
