Unlike many other species of spiders which rely on their webs to catch prey, orange-kneed tarantulas are ambush hunters. They carve deep burrows into the soil which not only protects them from predators, but allows them to lunge out and ambush passing prey. For those who aren’t afraid of a friend with eight legs, the orange-kneed tarantula makes a lovely pet!
