A highly venomous spider is one of 7,000 living insects and arachnids stolen from the Philadelphia Insectarium & Butterfly Pavilion on Aug. 22.

Surveillance video captured the brazen heist, showing the suspects loading plastic containers into a car in broad daylight. 

A few minutes later, video showed them driving away, taking more than $40,000 worth of creatures, including the deadly six-eyed sand spider. 

One strange clue left behind? Blue staff uniforms were impaled to the wall with steak knives, leading police to suspect it was an inside job.
