      One fascinating feature of goliath bird-eaters, as well as some other tarantula species, is their ability to make noise. When feeling threatened, the goliath bird-eater is capable of making a pretty loud hissing noise by rubbing bristles on its legs together. Called stridulation, it can be loud enough to be heard up to 15 feet away!

    4. I think I would prefer to hear the sound of an entire Mongol horde charging at me than one of these abominations stridulating between my bed sheets.

    7. That’s an amazing arachnid. I love how creeped out people get when they see a spider that can take down a mammal.

      Is that species aggressive towards humans? Looks like a good pet to me.
