How to draw a Bird Spider(Tarantula)

Tarantula – pet spider.

The most conspicuous amongst the spiders is tarantula – extremely big tropical spider.

Tarantula does not need a web, but it is too lazy to hunt, so it waits for the prey in the ambush. On the other hand, bodily tarantula is a typical hunter: long and very thick legs, wide strong chest and comparatively small abdomen. We dare not say that this spider is beautiful, but it has certain splendor: immense, strong, often – bright colored, motionless, it looks mighty and majestic.

Tarantula is an outstanding survivor, and sometimes even lives more than 20 years. This spider is very lazy and moves only when necessary. It also happens that it stays motionless for several months. Another interesting fact about the tarantula is that it could be an exotic pet. Connoisseurs breed them in special terrariums, today this pastime is available almost to every citizen. Actually tarantula fails to tame, but its temper is calm by nature, and its poison causes no death to a human, so it is not very dangerous. They say that you mustn`t take this creature in your hands, not only for the reason of the poisoned bite. Whole body of tarantula is covered with tough hair which may cause the sharp itch. Sometimes (when disturbed) tarantula even scratches itself to spread this hair in the air and cause itch to the enemy. But as a fact, big tarantula is quiet and idle, especially domesticated one – because of abundance of food.

Speaking of the tarantula, I mean Mexican redknee tarantula (Brachypelma smithi) beautiful, large spider, which I love.
