Summary, etc.:
Skeptical readers may not think a spider could take down and eat a bird, but this book certainly proves it. These menacing monsters stalk their flying prey, though they mostly stick to insects and other, easier-to-hunt victims. One of the most amazing things readers discover about this fierce predator is that much like other scary, hairy tarantulas they re mostly harmless to humans! Bird-eating spiders will only bite when they re scared or feel they re under attack, and it s only as bad as a wasp sting!
