Can you imagine? People keep these as pets=From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Goliath bird eater (Theraphosa blondi) is a spider belonging to the tarantula family
It is considered to be the second largest spider in the world (by leg-span) and it may be the largest by mass.
These spiders can have a leg span of up to 28 cm (11 in) and can weigh over 170 g (6.0 oz)
When disturbed, Theraphosa blondi, the Goliath tarantula, can produce a rather loud hissing noise by rubbing together the bristles on its legs. This is said to be audible to a distance of up to 15 feet (4.5 m)
T. blondi have fangs large enough to break the skin of a human (1.93.8 cm or 0.751.5 in). They carry venom in their fangs and have been known to bite when threatened
Females have an average life span of 15 to 25 years. The female lays anywhere from 100 to 200 eggs, which hatch into spiderlings within two months.
