Pink-toed Tarantula

Avicularia avicularia

Its hunting style is sit-and-wait, remaining motionless in a trance-like state until prey is close. Should a predator investigate whether the tarantula itself would be good to eat, the spider kicks bristles off its own abdomen, irritating the predator’s eyes and airways.
