21 Chilling Pictures of Tarantulas

The tarantula is an arachnid who is usually considered not dangerous to humans. But with over 900 species identified, I’m sure one of them might have a scary bite. Then again, for some, just the looks of a tarantula may creep you out. On the flip side, these creatures make some awesome subjects for photography. So if you’re able to get close enough without freaking out, have a friend who’s ‘brave’ enough to handle one, and/or just plain think tarantulas are cool, then these 21 chilling pictures are for you. For the rest of us, just seeing a picture of these hairy beasts may give you nightmares tonight.
