Tarantulas are on 5 different episodes, and are #4 on Defenders, #8 on Monster Myths, #3 on Odd Couples (paired with Frog), #8 on Living Dead, #5 on Weird Weapons. They protect themselves against predators by firing millions of hairs on its back into their face like darts. They disrupt, and do terrible things to the nasal cavity. They also like to live in banana trees. That is why they sometimes get shipped in banana carts, and give some unwary banana buyers a surprise scare. They can also go against small snakes. However, their is one creature that hunts tarantulas. The tarantula hawk is a parasitic wasp that hunts tarantulas. It paralyzes the spider, brings it down to its burrow, lays a single egg on it, and seals the chamber. When the egg hatches, it sucks on the juices of the tarantula. The tarantula remains paralyzed for up to 2 weeks.
