Caption

Ants and spiders of Surinam. At upper left, in a web with spiderlings, is a huntsman spider (Heteropoda venatoria). At lower left and centre right are pinktoe tarantulas (Avicularia avicularia) preying on ants and a bird on its nest. The ants are also preying on an insect at lower right. This artwork is from 'Metamorphosibus Insectorum Surinamensium' (1705) by German nature illustrator Maria Sybilla Merian (1647-1717). Surinam (now called Suriname) is in northern South America.
