#Video | the Giant spiders were the cause of death of many animals

A Huge tarantula's seem horrible and the photos but on the video they were even worse. Edition of National Geographic for the first time in history managed to shoot, as a huge spider attacking a possum and pulls into a secluded place for further eating. Was conducted the whole study, which proved that arthropods are one of the main causes of extinction of vertebrates. In addition to the possums, spiders destroy snakes, lizards and even frogs.

The First video with a tarantula eating a possum, was shot on 18 November 2016, but published only now. It is part of a larger study in which scientists were able to film the 15 meetings of arthropod predators and vertebrates in the Amazon rainforest. In the catalogue the researchers also included photographs of tarantulas that eat reptiles and reptiles.

"When we first encountered the couple, the possum was still active and weakly kicking. We watched it for five minutes, after which the opossum stopped moving, and the spider dragged him to the roots of the trees."

Researchers claim that the tarantula was the size of a large plate, with its length was approximately 30 cm. Typically, these spiders hunt at night and paralyze victims with poison. Scientists came to the conclusion that spiders are an underappreciated cause of great mortality of vertebrates in tropical forests.
