The Tarantula’s bite has made it quite famous, but little do people know that the little barbed hairs on this spider’s legs are its main defense. They can be quite painful when brushed into an enemy’s eyes and skin.

The Peabody’s docents will come to your public event with their educational kits. For more information contact the Volunteer Office at 203.432.3731 or peabody.volunteers@yale.edu.
