An Incisive Spider

Spiders are great at hitching rides on travelers, but apparently they can also burrow into them. At least that was reportedly the experience of Dylan Thomas.

Note that, per Snopes, all reports go back to Thomas himself, with no confirmation from the medics in Bali who supposedly removed the spider from his abdomen. If confirmed, it would be the first verified case of a spider living inside of a living person.
