This just heard on BBC World Service, then found in Times.

A chef cleaning up in an English restaurant found a humungous spider
and snapped its picture on his mobile   phone, thinking his friends
would never believe it.

The spider snapped too, biting him twice.

Soon he was in the emergency room and in mortal peril.   But he
remembered the cellphone picture.  The emergency folks were able to get
out the picture to Bristol Zoo, where they recognized the world's
deadliest spider, Phoneutria fera,   in time to save our chef.

Proves the rule: WHEN IN DOUBT, DOCUMENT!

Best,Ted
