Ecuadorian purple tarantula (Avicularia purpurea)
Found mainly in the Northern half of South America, the Goliath Bird Eater is the largest of all tarantulas in the world, with a leg span of 1 foot. As you may have guessed, this particular spider eats birds, making it a lot more terrifying than your average house spider. They spend most of their time living in their burrows (or burrows they’ve stolen), and only venture out a few feet to feast. To make matters worse, not only do they eat birds, they can, unlike most spiders, hiss at perceived threats, their bite is quite painful, and they can flick their hair at you, which can be extremely irritating to skin, eyes and lungs. They are considered to be extremely aggressive, and it is advised against keeping them as pets.
uhhh no tarantula preys solely on birds sorry
the diet of a t. blondi consists of mainly invertebrate prey with an occasional small rodent or reptile.
this post has so much bs in it wow.
why do people try to make animals sound as terrifying as possible?
t. blondi venom is quite weak. their bite wouldnt be too bad. it may feel like a kitten bite. and they arent “extremely aggressive” but they are hard to keep in captivity because they die pretty easily and are very sensitive.
please don’t make bull shit posts about tarantulas in an attempt to frighten people.
My little Rosie posing for my photography project. Had to share the pose. See the red? yup that’s her mouth and you can sort of see her fangs too. Best shot out of all the 30+ pictures I took from the “fighting” scene I’m TRYING to make.
She’s a cutie… Just sittin’ on my leg.. Hehe
Misdreavus, after his last molt.
Mature, dark and mysterious, and surprisingly attractive now, but hard to photograph.

i feel like there really isn’t a color or color combination that does not exist on some tarantula, somewhere.
like someday someone will find a colony of fuzzy eight-legged beasties covered in rainbow paisleys, living deep in an Indonesian jungle

Yeah that would be rather insane too considering how much money they are all worth. I’ve already sold most of them :3
you could buy a nice little pair of shoes or a couple shirts or a nice dinner for you and a friend for just what one is worth.
PS these are living creatures and its not ok to say things like that!!! respect all animals even if they are much smaller than you!!!! this is someones work and they have worked hard to produce these little guys.
anyway, cute avics. i want one!!!
This is infinitely precious
Tarantulas come in all shapes, sizes and colors. While the vast majority are browns and black, many species are instead vibrant hues that can dazzle the eyes of even the most ardent bug-hater.
yes good somebody finally made a tarantula rainbow
