Hairy spiders were a variety of subterranean spider.
Hairy spiders were about the size of a human hand. They were hairy and black. They could not spin webs, but they could climb on the webs of other spiders.
Hairy spiders swarmed on their target, infecting them with their poisonous bites and tearing out chunks of flesh.
Hairy spiders dwelt in and around drow settlements in the Underdark, as well as in jungles, tombs, and caverns.
