Tarantulas have been around for more than 150 million years, yet we know surprisingly little about them. Follow “tarantula scientist” Sam Marshall as he tracks them down in rain forests, and then takes some back to his Spider Lab to study them in more detail. Illustrated with outstanding photographs that capture the beauty of tarantulas.
