About this book

Tarantulas of the World describes and illustrates almost 300 species of tarantulas of the Theraphosidae family by biogeographical zone. The descriptions enable non-specialists to identify each species, and provides additional information on lifestyle, habitat and distribution. Theraphosidae systematics are presented in the form of an identification key for subfamilies and a description of particularly note-worthy genera. An exhaustive list of currently known species is also presented by subfamily and by country. Tarantulas of the World also covers Theraphosidae biology: anatomy, primary biological functions, ecology, venomology and pharmacological research. Tarantulas of the World also contains advice on breeding and rearing Theraphosidae.
