The sixteen eyes, prickly brittle hairs on the legs and the two enormous mandibles are the makings of God's most beautiful creatures ...at least in my opinion. The fact that they have 8 legs enalble these monster tarantulas to keep up with a human at jogging speed. That dark bulbous circle in the balk of the spider's head is the back part of his body...he was so large that the entire spider would not focus at this range. Join with me in enjoying this marvelous image and get as close to the monitor as you can so you can see every detail.
APRIL FOOL! I hate these hideous creatures!! They make my skin crawl...and I couldn't hardly post this image. Do yourself a favor and leave the blog as soon as you can before it jumps out at you!
I couldn't pass up April Fool's Day.
