They don't usually live in bananas. They live in the north America but they live on top of the banana on the topping so be careful when you buy bananas. The bananas you buy comes from other places so good luck.
Banana spider is the common name given to large (3 cm body length) active hunting spiders of the genus Phoneutria (Family: Ctenidae). These spiders live in Central and South American rainforests. They are often found in rubbish around human dwellings, as well as hiding in foliage such as banana leaves where they sometimes bite workers harvesting bananas. They have a reputation for being quite aggressive.
