Sorry to be silly/crude, but I know that spiders have 8 legs, but the smaller limbs, between the spider's two front legs, what are they called? Sorry, I'm not informed, I'm just trying to conquer my fear c:

Those are called pedipalps and they are generally used to aid in feeding. But some species also use them for some reproductive purposes as well.

Don't worry. Everybody have things they don't know and the only way you ever will know is by asking questions. Spiders are interesting creatures and watching a tarantula go about it's business is actually really neat.

Ah, thank-you for the help!
I'm quite afraid of insects, but I thought spiders would be a very interesting and immersive (if not terrifying) place to start, and it seems I was right.

Anyway, thank-you again!

i love tarantulas :) they´re so beautiful and i love the way they´re moving.
great photo! i personally think the foreground should be less blurry, but it´s fine that way too.

Beautiful animal, take care of her now! You referred to her as an insect earlier, don't let her here you say that! :) Spiders have been around for up to 400 million years; more than twice as long as insects. In fact their ancestors were among the first creatures on land, even before plants.

Superb picture. Your gallery is excellent, though most of your models have only half as many limbs as this one :)

The tarantual was named after a large italian spider from Terento
Because of that, all large spiders became known as Tarantulas?
