Found this video on the B&N site. Does anybody know if it is worth buying? Too bad they don't have it in DVD format.

Haven't seen that one, but from looking at what it's about I'm kinds wary...
It says it takes a look at the "largest and most venemous species in the world." Doesn't sound too accurate if it's about, as it says, tarantulas. :?

I have it and it's not worth the $20 at all. It talks more about the naked bush people than the actual tarantula. They only talk about one species, the Goliath Birdeater. The people are in the video because they eat the tarantula. I got mine on ebay for $6.00 and that was worth it I guess but I would never pay $20 for it plus shipping.

I find the film interesting, it shows the tarantulas (T. apophysis) natural habitat and shows a relationship with the Piaroa indians and tarantulas.
I recorded it free of charge on TV.

It was interesting yes...but it could've been more about the actual tarantula.

Thanks for the info

I guess I won't go through with this purchase. Maybe someday I'll catch it in the tube and record it like the other shows. So far I think "Tarantulas and their Venomous Relations" is the best one.
