FACTS OF INTEREST:
- The hairy tarantula lives around the world in the tropics and subtropics. It makes its home in burrows in the ground or in trees.
- Though tarantulas are big-the Brazilian bird-eater grows up to 10 inches across-and look scary, they are shy and slow-moving.
- Tarantulas do flick irritating hairs if threatened. They can also bite, but their venom is no more dangerous than a bee sting.
- Several species of tarantula with reddish legs are raised in captivity and are popular as pets. It is illegal to collect them in the wild because they are endangered.
