(Eddie, age 4) Enjoying nature Be it in the gardens of families, friends and
relations, or at local parks and beaches, or further afield, a love of nature figured
prominently among these Limestone Town children's thematic interests. For
example: The flowers are important because we've got flowers growing on our
road and in our yard and driveway. (Graham, age 4) I like butterflies and wrens. I
see them every day and every night. I have a bird eater for them. We put bird-
seed on it and we ...

Luckily, it is easy to stay way from the aggressive bird-eating spider. Unlike most
spiders, the bird-eating spider makes noise when feels threatened. Rubbing
together stiff bristles on its legs, the bird-eating spider can create a loud hissing
sound. The spider's hiss can be heard up to fifteen feet away. Goliath Bird Eater
Goliath Bird Eater is the largest spider on earth. Goliath Bird Eaters eat insects
and small snakes. When provoked, the Goliath Bird Eater will bite with their one-

Mr. Wallace thinks that the bird-eater mimics the insect-eater, so as to deceive the
birds, which are not afraid of the latter. But if the two hawks look alike, would not
the birds come to regard them both as bird-eaters, since one of them does eat
birds? Would they not at once identify the harmless one with their real enemy and
thus fear them both alike ? If the latter were newcomers and vastly in the minority,
then the ruse might work for a while. But if there were ten harmless hawks around

A Goliath birdeater is about the same size as a dinner plate—it can grow to a total
length of 11 inches (28 cm) and weigh about 6 ounces (170 g). A Goliath's
spiderlings are also big—they can have a 6-inch (15 cm) leg span just one year
after hatching. These giant tarantulas are found mostly in the rain forests of
Guyana, Suriname, Brazil, and Venezuela. The Goliath birdeater's name is
misleading—they commonly eat insects and small reptiles. Similar to other
tarantula species, the ...

Goliath. birdeater. Theraphosa blondi Regarded as the largest spider in the world
, this tarantula has a leg span that could cover a dinner plate, and a mass of
about 170g (6 oz), which far outweighs any of its rivals. Only Asia's giant
huntsman spider has a larger leg span. Goliath birdeater females are much
larger than the males. The name “birdeater” is based on a 1705 engraving by
German naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian, which showed a Goliath birdeater
devouring a hummingbird.

Goliath bird eaters also readily produce airborne urticating hairs in response to a
disturbance. Many people appear more sensitive to this spider's urticating hairs
than to those of Brachypelma or Grammostola spp., but this may be due to the
fact that they are much less likely to kick off their hairs than Theraphosa blondi.
The bird eater frequently assumes a moth-eaten appearance with an unattractive
bald opisthosoma when on public display because it discards hairs in response
