Tarantulas give some people the creeps because of their large, hairy bodies and legs. However, these spiders are harmless to humans (except for a painful bite) and their mild venom is weaker than a typical bee's. There are hundreds of tarantula species found in most of the world's tropical, subtropical, and arid regions. They vary in color and behavior according to their specific environments. Generally, tarantulas are burrowers that live in the ground. A tarantula does not use a web to ensnare prey, though it may spin a trip wire to signal an alert when something approaches its burrow. These spiders grab with their appendages, inject paralyzing venom, and dispatch their unfortunate victims with their fangs. They also secrete digestive enzymes to liquefy their victims' bodies so that they can suck them up through their straw-like mouth openings. After a large meal, the tarantula may not need to eat for a month.
