    This thing is terror embodied. It can scream at you.

    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!

    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.

    I’ve wanted one of these beauties for a while. One day. One day.

    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.
