Good evening everyone, i hope that you are having a lovely Thursday. Today i want to share with you photographs of the largest spiders that exist.
The Goliath birdeater, which belongs to the Tarantula family Theraphosidae is the largest living spider in the world. They weigh around 175 g and their body length can grow up to 13 cm in length. Dispite the name of the spider, it rarely eats birds. They can be found in rain forest regions such as northern Brazil, Venezuela, the amazon rainforest etc.
The Goliath birdeater is considered an edible spider and is part of local cruisine in South America.
They are not venomous spiders but if they do bite it can be very painful.
