Did you know...
The tailorbird of Africa and Asia is aptly named. It makes its nest by sewing the edges of a large tree leaf together with its beak, using a grass blade as a kind of thread. The leaf gets shaped into a cone and, since it stays on the tree, remains green, and thus the nest stays virtually invisible.

CRAP !!
the venom of a tarantula is very low in toxicity.
in reality, no spider's bite is lethal if properly treated. the only danger from tarantulas comes from the irritating chemicals found on the abdominal hair, which causes rashes.
the brown recluse spider variety, while not lethal, is far worse for humans than is the venom of the tarantula.
