We have seen these beauties mainly on the hillsides along the valley. Whenever we see tarantula-hawk wasps buzzing around, we keep our eyes peeled for these tarantulas. (Personal Photo)
Something interesting about this spider is that it does not build a web to catch its food. Instead, it wanders around looking for a nice meal. Photo 302220, Kaldari, no known copyright restrictions (public domain)
These colorful spiders build great-looking webs. They are not dangerous to people. After mating, the female will eat the male then it will die shortly after laying its eggs (Personal Photo)
These spiders like to burrow in the ground near rivers. They will catch insects and even small fish! They are aggressive towards humans, and their bite can hurt. © Peter J. Bryant.
This is an invasive species. It is an opportunistic omnivore. They will eat fish, eggs, plants and even each other! Breeding males can wander as far as 17 km in four days to look for a girlfriend! (Personal Photo)
Even though their name means 100, they never have 100 legs.They always have an odd-numbered pair of legs. The number of legs even changes throughout their life. They bite! Found this fellow near Aquatica. (Personal Photo)
