Most people think of tarantula spiders as big, black, hairy, and creepy! But tarantulas can be orange, green, and even turquoise. Some have pink toes! This book introduces young readers to tarantula spiders. Students will learn about tarantula spiders' sizes, behaviors, habits, dietary needs, methods of defense, anatomy, and color. Reproduction and spiderling development are also introduced. A diagram of a spider's body aids readers in indentifying anatomical features. Threats to the spiders and their habitat including predators and humans are covered. Readers will also learn about the many types of shelters tarantulas build. A distribution map shows where tarantula spiders are found, so the young arachnologist can be on the lookout for a specimen to observe. For the less adventurous, full-color photos allow close observation from the comfort of the library! Glossary words in bold, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement easy-to-read text. These books are ideal for research reports and general reading. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
