The Largest Spider In The World!

The Goliath Tarantula or Theraphosa blondi can grow to over a foot long with fangs that measure an amazing 2 inches in length! Also known as the Goliath Birdeater, this spider is officially the largest spider in the world! Courtesy of The National Geographic Channel this video shows some of the strange abilities of the Goliath Tarantula. I have to admit I wouldn't want this guy's job...



For more beautiful footage from the National Geographic Channel check out this next video which gives a look inside the Panama Rainforest... Enjoy it while it last!
