Full Answer

There is no definite explanation regarding the class or species of the spider that bit Parker. The comics only hinted that the spider was close to dying after being exposed to radiation and transferred a proportional amount of strength and agility to the comic's protagonist. In the July 2014 chapter of the Amazing Spider-Man, however, the possibility is introduced that the spider may bite a person other than Parker.
