Those that leave near to ponds can occasionally snag a small fish, and paralyse it with its venom. The fish is bigger and heavier then the spider so it can take several days to devour the fish.
And here is another example.
A newly-discovered tarantula in the wilds of Sri Lanka with a length of 8 inches may be the longest known spider.
It surely can’t be like a paradise all the time, but the British Virgin Islands certainly look better than the place I’m in now.
