This topic might have a better name.

Mutant spider (Arachnids in the UK), since that's the term preferred by Case File Four.

Talk about it here.

The spiders that crawled through Jack Robertson's hotel were the offspring of a genetically modified carcass that, by toxic waste, revived and grew into an enormous size.

Hakim Khan collected the toxic waste as "evidence" for his daughter Yasmin Khan to prove to her and the police there was something going on.

The spiders were led by their mother, which was larger than the others. As it was suffocating by its own size, Robertson shot it, murdering it. The spiders were eventually contained through the efforts of the Thirteenth Doctor, Ryan Sinclair, Graham O'Brien and Yaz. (TV: Arachnids in the UK)
