World's Most Beautiful Tarantula in Peril

  • Published: 08 December 2018
  • This is the epic story of how the most beautiful tarantula in the world, with her entrancing, innate arachnid beauty, took her crown as goddess of the Antiverse (the Ant Room). In a scramble against time to harvest her webbing to keep our fire ants (the Fire Nation) from escaping their paludarium set up (the Selva de Fuego), we are caught in the middle of a double crisis. Watch these two crises unfold and how they are resolved, in today's epic Tarantula vs. Fire Ant story. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    Greetings, AC Family! Wait until you meet the new goddess of the Antiverse! She's absolutely stunning and even got me in a trance! More importantly, though, her webbing will keep the Fire Nation contained in their setup, but there's been a setback and a big problem. Hope you guys enjoy today's video of the happenings of the Antiverse. Tune in to the Premiere and hit SET REMINDER so you join us to watch together! Oh yeah, and don't forget to hit the LIKE button, leave me a COMMENT, and SUSBCRIBE (hit the bell) if you haven't joined the family, yet! Thank you! Love you, guys! See you all shortly at the Premiere!

      I'm quite positive i've found a new species of spider the summer of 2017 and have detailed videos of her and her egg sacs. I have researched for two years now and i still cannot find out what species it is. I will gladly upload the videos to my YT channel tonight.

                                              it's indeed a beautiful setup but it is not suitable for tarantulas at all, they'd rather live in a hole and that's it, far from too much light. In the long run it can get stressed, not eat and eventually die.
