So I was just watching a TV show called animal oddities. It showed Martin hunting Goliath bird eaters no scientific name was given that I remember but they were up in French Guyana. At one point they stated that "Goliath bird eaters had 65 different proteins as toxins". I was wondering if all tarantulas carried the same number of toxins and if those toxins are ment to all target different animals or the combination of the toxins are what works together to create a venom that works well against most animals?
