Fear as giant tarantula is discovered in Catamarca, Argentina.

The huge spider measures more than 40 inches and weighs 300 grams. Well that’s a monster!

The gigantic tarantula was found by young activists while helping residents of Bañado de Ovanta, Catamarca Province, Argentina, affected by heavy storms since a week.

The arachnid is similar to so-called Goliath Tarantula, the largest spider in the world and native of the Amazon rainforest. It is a spider migalomorfa type and inhabits the northern parts of Latin America, reaching 30 centimeters in length and no more than 100 grams.

The newly discovered terrifying specimen measures just over 40 inches and weighs 300 grams.

So could it be a MUTANT Goliath Tarantula? Or a nice hoax (plush)? What do you think?

  1. You do a disservice to your readers and the internet community to promote nonsense and fear mongering of apocalyptic events without being knowledgable about earth sciences, biology, sociology, or how viral hoaxes will get you.

  3. If they have 40 inch tarantulas in Argentina…I want to move there! South America has some of the most beautiful and diverse arachnids & they’re completely under-appreciated. This 40-inch specie may be a hoax, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some larger species other than the 12-inch T. blondi & stirmi were to be discovered in the future. This is why the forests in South America need to be protected! For its inhabitants!
