Monsters of Nature – Tarantulas & their Relatives

Monsters of Nature – Tarantulas & their Relatives
On Natures Talk Shows Monsters of Natures our hosts will be discussing the amazinf Tarantulas and some of their close relatives.Why are these spiders so hairy and how did they become so big? Tarantulas (Theraphosa apophysis) are the largest known arachnids. On average, they measure 7 to 10 cm in length. However, they are capable of exceeding 30 cm. Tarantulas occur in a variety of colors, sizes and habitats. Many are black or brown in color and have hairy bodies. Tarantula species are distinguishable from other spiders by the dense body hair. Several species also bear distinct stripes along their legs. The perceived size of specimens is oftentimes exaggerated, due to the tarantula?s abundant hair. This hair, which covers the entire body of the tarantula, serves as a defense mechanism against predators. Although frightening in appearance, tarantulas are only aggressive when provoked.

Join our hosts for another fun discussion and many peoples worst nightmare!

On Natures Talk Shows Fine Art of Paleontology,please join our hosts,Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman as they discuss  he Flightless Birds of the Southern Hemisphere.

What do the ostrich in Africa, emu in Australia, rhea in South America, cassowary in New Guinea and the kiwi from New Zealand have in common? They all belong to a particular species called ratites or ‘birds that cannot fly.’

Notice something unique about where these birds are found? They are all located in the Southern Hemisphere!

The birds also had a common ancestor known as the elephant bird which once lived in Madagascar. As the name implies, these were huge birds – 10 feet (3 metres) tall.
