Biggest spider: Goliath Bird-eating Tarantula

The massive size of the Goliath bird-eating Tarantula makes it the World’s Biggest Spider. Considered the largest spider in the world, the Goliath bird-eater could reach 8 inches long and with a life span of 15 to 25 years. The spiders may look scary but, thank God, they are harmless to humans, as are most species of tarantulas. They are not deadly spiders or killer spiders since their venom could only cause small swelling and mild pain, just like a wasp sting. The Goliath bird-eating spider in photos below.
