A zoologist from Odessa, Ukraine, built a house more than a thousand tarantulas. About it reports information portal “Obozrevatel”.
Sergei Kudryashov was fascinated by tarantulas 10 years ago. The first spider appeared to him in the tenth grade. Currently, the Ukrainian collection includes 65 species and about a thousand individuals. Half of his pupils are not venomous, and those that have venom, do not show aggression to people.
According to Kudryashova, spiders cannot be trained or tamed, but they are accustomed to humans who care for them. He feeds his tarantulas once a week and watering them with water.
The diet consists of arthropods larvae, and cockroaches, which Kudryashov helpless on their own. His spiders eat up to two thousand insects in a week. The rarest bird in his collection — Poecilotheria metallica. This species is on the brink of extinction.
The spiders — arthropods, characterized by an exotic look, long shaggy limbs and eye-catching color. All kinds of tarantulas in varying degrees poisonous, but some of them have a relatively low degree of toxicity of the poison.
