Just some quotes from the page:

"makes it appealing for pet owners as these spider spices are available in the pet trade."

"as they are docile and do not cause harm. In defense, they can jump defense with their bristles."

"These extraordinary beautiful spiders have four to eight eyes"

Talking about B smithi:
"bites can be hurtful, but they don’t bite often and are very calm in behavior" and then they say "female tarantulas are quite the opposite with very aggressive and fierce temperaments."

"bitten or stung by a Tarantula, seek medical assistance immediately."

Well well. That site boasts the subtitle "science and nature" in the header. If that is the general quality of information people are finding when they google "science", there's no wonder that we are all still stuck in this pandemic...

I enjoyed that the tarantula haunts it's prey.

Also learned about moles, otters and wolverines from the same page

To long for a laugh(“hurtful” was particularly interesting) but the pictures of the otters are really cute.

We all know that there are 11 types of tarantulas
They forgot the Brazilian salmon pink goliath bird-eating tarantula

I think this is a prime example of the dangers of the internet. No peer review and everyone can appear to be an expert until proven wrong by a real one.
