A recording made by a couple who found a horrible surprise when they bought bananas has gone viral (video below).

The clip shows the couple and their friend examining a huge, white spider sac -- that almost resembles a plastic bag -- in the banana and wondering what it is.

A woman says, “I don’t wanna know” as the man opens the sac with two knives.

The wife asks, “What is it?” As a glimpse of a large, brown spider surfaces from the sac, the other woman screams, “It’s alive!”

The man screams as the spider fully emerges and his wife lets out a “No!”

But that’s not all, the spider’s eggs are also in the sac, reports Daily Mail.

“The babies are in here,” says the husband.

“No, I cannot believe this,” exclaims the wife.

Dozens of sacs are revealed to be in the main sac as the spider exits the banana. “Oh yeah, big fat butt,” says the man.

After filming the incident, the husband stated:

“My wife and I have been trying to eat healthier. Little did we know, when we picked up two bunches of bananas, at one of our local supermarkets, that we were putting our lives in danger. I was at work when my wife called to tell me what she had found. As a child, her Dad would tell her to be careful with bananas because tarantulas often live in them. When she grabbed for a healthy treat there was more resistance than usual and a sound like velcro as she separated it; and it revealed the white puffy egg/sack hidden inside. Immediately, she got them the heck out of our home. When I arrived, she, her friend and I decided to see what, exactly, was inside.”

This is not the first time people have found spider sacs in bananas. In 2013, a London family evacuated their home  after dozens of deadly spiders sprung from a banana they bought at a local supermarket, according to ABC News.

Consi Taylor, 29, noticed a small white sac that looked like mold on a banana she was eating.

"I had a closer look and was horrified to see they were spiders," Taylor said. "They were hatching out on the table, scurrying around on my carpet."

She took a photo of the spiders and sent it to a local insect control company for advice. It turns out, the spiders were Brazilian wandering spiders. The species was crowned by the Guinness World Records as the world’s most venomous in 2010.
