    Female tarantulas can live 30 years or longer in the wild.
    Female tarantulas are famously long-lived. Even in captivity, they've been known to live for over 20 years. Males, on the other hand, don't make it much beyond reaching sexual maturity, with a lifespan of just 5-10 years on average. In fact, males don't even molt once they reach maturity.

  9. 9 What is a correct defence they have?

    1. Tarantulas defend themselves by throwing needle-like, barbed hairs at their attackers.
    2. Tarantulas defend themselves by spitting venom at there prey.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    If a tarantula does feel threatened, it uses its hind legs to scrape barbed hairs from its abdomen and flings them in the direction of the threat. You'll know it if they hit you, too, because they cause a nasty, irritating rash. Some people may even suffer a serious allergic reaction as a result. The tarantula pays a price, too – it winds up with a noticeable bald spot on its belly.
