Caption: Tarantula. Indian ornate rainforest tarantula (Poecilotheria regalis) on a man's hand. This highly aggressive spider is also known as a South Indian ornamental black and white. The specimen seen here can be handled with caution as it was bred in captivity. P. regalis is believed to have a potent venom. In the wild it is found in the monsoon forests of South and South-West India, where it builds arboreal nests, especially in hollow or rotten trees. Tarantulas, hairy spiders of the family Theraphosidae, eat insects, lizards and birds.
