If a tarantula loses a leg, a new one will reappear as if by magic the next time it molts
When male tarantula finds a burrowing female, he’ll tap the ground with his legs, politely announcing his presence. After the mating is over, the female will often eat the male.
A tarantula bite is no more poisonous than a bee sting.
If a tarantula feels threatened, it uses its hind legs to scrape barbed hairs from its abdomen and flings them in the direction of the threat.
