Itsy-bitsy spider? Think again. This tarantula is big, hairy, and eats bugs for breakfast! The Peruvian pink-toe may have pretty feet, but it also has fangs that inject venom into their prey. If you'd like to find one, look for it in the South American rainforests, hiding safe from predators under tree bark.
