The myth of Tennessee barking spiders.

A myth in the united states southern area links a barking spider and an area . The spider mainly from the Tennessee area .

I think the breed of barking spider must be tied to the Wolf Spiders .The spider is not known from looks but would or may be common or look sort of like Wolf Spiders.

Have any of you heard this myth before ?

It was always used as a joke when someone passed gas.

Much like blaming it on the dog but spiders aren't generally visible.

According to urban

A rare species of spider classified as Flatus-Arachnid, more commonly known as The Barking Spider. Dating back to Prehistoric times it is the only species of its kind to warn its prey by expelling air from its body, and releasing a nauseous odor. Extremely small it likes to hide in tight spaces like the pockets on jeans, and interacts, and is associated with most living beings.

Thank you, plugged! I did my best.

Ironically, there seems to be some real barking spiders:
Tarantulas that hiss.

But most frequently it goes:

Eww. What was that?

It must be barking spiders!
