Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula in Action!!!

Below you will see a video of my almost full grown Goliath Bird Eating Tarantula catching a cricket by doing a complete 180 degree turn when the cricket walks up behind her.  Then you can watch it again in slow motion followed by a quick peek of another cricket being grabbed before she turns around and smiles at you with a mouth full of approximately 10 crickets.  Enjoy!!!

And now for a few pics of my Tailless Whip Scorpions after just having caught their prey (baby crickets).  They perch on the side of their rock and wait for the crickets to walk underneath them...and then they pounce and grab the crickets with their claws.  These guys are very, very cool!
