BUT I learned alot of interesting and amazing things about tarantulas which I did not know before. These include:
- Tarantulas were on the earth back in the time of the dinosaurs. In fact, it's even thought that tarantulas existed before the dinosaur age! (The oldest discovered tarantula fossile is from the Lower Triassic period of 235-240 million years ago.)
- Tarantulas have fangs. Do you know where they're at? I dare you to search for pictures of tarantula fangs to find out!
- Tarantulas kick hairs off of their abdomen, called Urticating hairs, which are lethal to some small animals and rodents. To humans, these hairs can cause severe itching and rashing. Tarantulas have developed these urticating hairs over time, as a form of evolution to defend themselves from predators.
