Hairy Tarantula Facts



Tarantulas are the world's biggest spiders. Deserts, rainforests, and grasslands are their primary habitats. Except for Antarctica, they can be found on every continent. Tarantulas come in over 800 different species. Some species have become endangered as a result of habitat loss, climate change, and the collection of tarantulas for sale as pets.

Females are much smaller than males. After mating, most females will devour males.


Around 2000 eggs are laid by the female, which hatch after 1-3 months of incubation.


In the first few years of their lives, the majority of juvenile spiders will be devoured by predators.


Female tarantulas may live up to 20 years, but males only survive 5-10 years.
