Let’s raise a hand who is afraid of tarantulas! Tarantulas are a species of spiders that have a big hairy body and long hairy legs. They can’t be small, but some varieties can be more than 10 cm in length. Just thinking about them makes us creep out.

The exciting fact about tarantulas is that they are not venomous spiders. They have long teeth, and they can bite you, and you don’t want to experience that because it doesn’t just sting, it hurts.

But besides that and a possible minor wound, you will be okay. You can’t die from a bite of the tarantula. And many people don’t know this fact, and immediately as they see a tarantula, even in a picture, they run away, thinking that these spiders are poisonous.

Some varieties have hairs that can irritate the skin of a human or even an animal, and it can also cause severe irritation in contact with the eyes. But you won’t be rubbing a tarantula all over your eyes, would you?

On the opposite side, some people are fascinated with arachnids, and tarantulas are their favorites. Thus, it is not uncommon for people to have these spiders as their pets; it’s pretty popular.

There are many varieties of these spiders, and we can say that there are around 900 of them. Smaller, more significant, more colorful, hairier, uglier, or cuter, depends on who you ask.

Tarantulas naturally live all over the world. You can find them in all the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. But you can’t find them in big cities, because they mostly live in rainforests, deserts, savannas, forests, mountains, all over in the wild.

So, if you ever see a tarantula in your city on the sidewalk, there is a possibility that it’s a runaway pet of someone.

In horror movies and Sci-Fi movies, you can see enormous tarantulas that hunt and eat humans, but it’s a bit different in real-life. Tarantulas mainly feed on insects, arthropods, and other spiders. But some also hunt mice, bats, lizards, small snakes, and even birds, but no humans. So, you are mostly safe.

There are some myths that their venom is lethal and that it can be used as a hallucinogen drug, but that’s not true.

We said that tarantulas don’t eat humans, but we didn’t say anything about humans eating tarantulas. You probably think that can’t be the case, considering their hairy body and legs, but think twice. For example, in Venezuela, a tarantula is a delicacy.

Probably you also have a fear of tarantulas, but why is that? It’s because for ages they are being portrayed as an object of fear by people. Some people even have a real phobia regarding spiders in general, and it’s called arachnophobia.
