(Eddie, age 4) Enjoying nature Be it in the gardens of families, friends and
relations, or at local parks and beaches, or further afield, a love of nature figured
prominently among these Limestone Town children's thematic interests. For
example: The flowers are important because we've got flowers growing on our
road and in our yard and driveway. (Graham, age 4) I like butterflies and wrens. I
see them every day and every night. I have a bird eater for them. We put bird-
seed on it and we ...

Luckily, it is easy to stay way from the aggressive bird-eating spider. Unlike most
spiders, the bird-eating spider makes noise when feels threatened. Rubbing
together stiff bristles on its legs, the bird-eating spider can create a loud hissing
sound. The spider's hiss can be heard up to fifteen feet away. Goliath Bird Eater

and small snakes. When provoked, the Goliath Bird Eater will bite with their one-

The torch would sputter and return her to darkness soon, when the bird died. But
for now, her second heart, her birdheart, beat on. She learned two things. First,
the queen's quarters were far above, and the only way to get there was to fly. And
—able now to understand the bird chatter and calls around her—she also
learned that she had been observed after all. Another young sparrow had seen
her in the corner, swallowing his brother alive. He had raised the alarm: Birdeater

The South American Goliath birdeater is the world's largest spider . The Goliath
birdeater measures 1 foot (0.3 meter) across. It can weigh more than 6 ounces (
170 grams). That's about the size of a newborn puppy! But despite its name, this
terrifying tarantula doesn't often eat birds. Instead it eats nearly anything it finds
on the ground. Usually it's earthworms. Sometimes it's the brains of a rodent or
frog. The birdeater lies in wait in its home on the forest floor. A mouse scurries by.

Mr. Wallace thinks that the bird-eater mimics the insect-eater, so as to deceive the
birds, which are not afraid of the latter. But if the two hawks look alike, would not
the birds come to regard them both as bird-eaters, since one of them does eat
birds? Would they not at once identify the harmless one with their real enemy and
thus fear them both alike ? If the latter were newcomers and vastly in the minority,
then the ruse might work for a while. But if there were ten harmless hawks around

A Goliath birdeater is about the same size as a dinner plate—it can grow to a total
length of 11 inches (28 cm) and weigh about 6 ounces (170 g). A Goliath's
spiderlings are also big—they can have a 6-inch (15 cm) leg span just one year
after hatching. These giant tarantulas are found mostly in the rain forests of
Guyana, Suriname, Brazil, and Venezuela. The Goliath birdeater's name is
misleading—they commonly eat insects and small reptiles. Similar to other
tarantula species, the ...
