The tarantula is the largest spider in the world. They live in the ground, in the desert and tarantula 2in forests. They eat insects, frogs, lizards, bats, mice and snakes. They have fangs with venom to catch their prey. How you ask? It makes its prey stop moving.

Their hairs sense heat, cold and things that move. They have eight eyes, but don’t see very well. An adult tarantula can live up to 30 years. Female tarantulas live much longer than the male tarantula.
