That's why I said most cities. When your city-building species covers most of the world, it's not hard to see why at least some cities would contain dangerous snakes and spiders. But then far more cities contain disease-spreading rats and dangerous dogs as well. In any case, our African ancestors didn't evolve arachnophobia in case it came in handy in Australia.
