    About This Print

    Goliath bird eating spider



    Despite its name, the goliath birdeater does not normally eat birds. Rather, it eats mostly invertebrates such as crickets, mealworms and moths, as well as small vertebrates such as frogs, mice and lizards.



    The Goliath birdeater is one of the few tarantulas which can capture and eat a fullgrown mouse. While feeding, the spider will turn and leave a web barrier to prevent interruption from other animals.



    The goliath birdeater is fairly harmless to humans, as are most species of tarantulas. Like all tarantulas, it has fangs large enough to break the skin of a human.



    They do carry venom in their fangs and have been known to bite humans when threatened, but the venom is relatively harmless and its effects are comparable to those of a wasp's sting. Tarantulas generally bite humans only in selfdefense.



    The goliath birdeater has poor eyesight and mainly relies on vibrations in the ground that they can sense from their burrows.

    Expertly made in England by Easyart, this quality giclée print is produced using museum standard materials, providing rich, vibrant colours.
