(Eddie, age 4) Enjoying nature Be it in the gardens of families, friends and
relations, or at local parks and beaches, or further afield, a love of nature figured
prominently among these Limestone Town children's thematic interests. For
example: The flowers are important because we've got flowers growing on our
road and in our yard and driveway. (Graham, age 4) I like butterflies and wrens. I
see them every day and every night. I have a bird eater for them. We put bird-
seed on it and we ...

Luckily, it is easy to stay way from the aggressive bird-eating spider. Unlike most
spiders, the bird-eating spider makes noise when feels threatened. Rubbing
together stiff bristles on its legs, the bird-eating spider can create a loud hissing
sound. The spider's hiss can be heard up to fifteen feet away. Goliath Bird Eater
Goliath Bird Eater is the largest spider on earth. Goliath Bird Eaters eat insects
and small snakes. When provoked, the Goliath Bird Eater will bite with their one-
inch long ...

The heaviest spiders are female bird- eating spiders (family Theraphosidae). A
female scarlet bird-eater (Lasiodora klugii) was quoted as one-time record holder
, although females of the goliath bird-eating spider (Theraphosa blondi) are
usually thought of as the heaviest. There is a record of a captive T blondi that
weighed in at 155g(572oz). Goliath bird-eating spider The heaviest spider is the
female goliath bird eating spider from South America. Despite the name, it does

Mr. Wallace thinks that the bird-eater mimics the insect-eater, so as to deceive the
birds, which are not afraid of the latter. But if the two hawks look alike, would not
the birds come to regard them both as bird-eaters, since one of them does eat
birds? Would they not at once identify the harmless one with their real enemy and
thus fear them both alike ? If the latter were newcomers and vastly in the minority,
then the ruse might work for a while. But if there were ten harmless hawks around

The energy the bird spends to come and see what's going on may have been put
to better use in ways that benefit it—collecting food, cleaning its feathers, or
chasing off that peeping tom from down the block. ○○ Luring songbirds into the
open can put them or their families at risk. If a predator is lurking—where's that
neighbor's cat?—the sight or motion of the bird, or the sound of the pishing, can
make the bird-eater curious enough to investigate, too. That could spell certain
death if ...

We call her the Puppeteer, but birds call her the Bird Eater, or the Mask. They fear
her. She was a dancer and a puppeteer—not in Down, in Up, in the real world, as
you might think of it. She made bird puppets to use in her dances, tiny, delicate
things in brilliant colors. Your eye made a trail behind them, a smear of ruby or
cerulean in the air like a long tail, because you couldn't bear to let the lovely color
go. All her tissue birds were like hummingbirds, were lighter than air, were glints

The largest spider in the world is a bird-eater. A goliath bird-eating spider from
South America was over three inches (7.6 cm) long with legs measuring 1 1
inches (28 cm) across. A spider this large weighs no more than three ounces (85
g). Most of the bird-eating spiders don't get this large, but none of them are small.
The salmon pink bird- eating spider from Brazil may have a legspan of eight
inches (20 cm) . The legspan of the New Guinea bird- eating spider only reaches
five inches ...

Goliath bird eaters also readily produce airborne urticating hairs in response to a
disturbance. Many people appear more sensitive to this spider's urticating hairs
than to those of Brachypelma or Grammostola spp., but this may be due to the
fact that they are much less likely to kick off their hairs than Theraphosa blondi.
The bird eater frequently assumes a moth-eaten appearance with an unattractive
bald opisthosoma when on public display because it discards hairs in response
