New huge spider found in Sri Lanka (pic)


New Giant Tarantula Discovered in Sri Lanka



quote:

A new type of tarantula about the size of your face has been found in northern Sri Lanka. Scientists found the spiders — with a leg span up to 8 inches across — living in trees and the old doctor’s quarters of a hospital in Mankulam.

Covered in beautiful, ornate markings, the spiders belong to the genus Poecilotheria, known as “Pokies” for short. These are the tiger spiders, an arboreal group indigenous to India and Sri Lanka that are known for being colorful, fast, and venomous. As a group, the spiders are related to a class of South American tarantula that includes the Goliath bird-eater, the world’s largest.

I've only met one taranula, it was in west Texas near el Paso. I caught him in a quart mason jar. Found the nearest ant nest, which are in the ground. Turned the jar upside down on top of the hole to the ant nest and watched a hundred huge ants eat him alive. It was pretty cool!
