Tarantula: Giant of the Spider World

Tarantulas can measure up to twelve inches across, with fangs up to one inch long. They’re formidable predators to insects, and even some relatively large prey such as mice and birds. Despite this, they’re not generally considered dangerous to humans when proper care is taken, and are even kept as exotic pets. Let’s take a look inside and see what makes a tarantula function!
