Artist's Description

CARD IF THE WEEK in Animal ad Pet Cards (10.17)
FEATURED in Love These Creatures (08.17)
One predator that the Tarantula must fear is … people. Not only are they caught as pets; in some countries they are also eaten! They are said to have a nutty taste kind of like peanut butter!

ARE YOU HUNGRY? LOL!

Tarantulas are part of the family of spiders called Hairy Mygalomorphs. These are the spiders that, scientists believe, have been around for millions of years and have not changed much in that time! There are around 700 species of Tarantulas.
The Goliath Bird-eating Tarantula species will eat larger prey, such as, lizards, snakes, frogs, bats and small birds.

This beautiful Tarantula is in the San Diego Zoo.
Canon7D, Sigma lens 18-250mm
