Bird Eater

Here is another bird eater tarantula. I have never visited the Amazon, and I think that, thanks to these, I won't. Ever. My arachnophobia is terrifying in its force if even a daddy-long-legs climbs on me. My heart would cease in its beating if I felt the weight of one of these monsters climbing up my pant leg.

Update: Brigette has corrected my perpetuation of this case of mistaken identity. This isn't a bird eater; it's a common pink toe tarantula. Thanks for the correction!
