Tarantulas are among the largest spiders in the world. In contrast to many other spiders, they do not spin a web but lay in wait for their prey especially frogs, mice, and birds. People don't have to be afraid of them. Tarantulas may have a strong bite, but they are good-natured, and their venom is weaker than that of bees.
- Tarantulas are fragile animals. Even a fall from a low height can be fatal to them.
- Scientific name: Theraphosidae
