The Arachnoquake Spiders are the main antagonists of the 2012 American horror film Arachnoquake.
Hidden within gas-filled caverns underneath New Orleans for years, these as-of-yet undiscovered arachnids are released to the surface by an earthquake, allowing them to attack the town.
Arachnoquake Spiders are large tarantulas of varying sizes. They possess bone-white exoskeletons with gray and black highlights near the tips of their legs and on their undersides; their bodies also possess sporadic black hairs. Their eyes are black, as are the dotted patterns on their abdomens.
