I live deep in a tropical forest. In from of the kitchen door, there is a hollow metal pole where a large pink toed tarantula lives. The has covered the interior of the pole with silk and made it all comfy and cozy. Because the light on top of the kitchen door attracts plenty of prey to the area she rarely moves from the spot. A few days ago, I was startled to see dozens, maybe even a hundred babies emerge from the pole. The pink toed tarantulas are bright blue when young. They were all over the bromeliads of the terrace, but eventually dispersed. Most will be eaten by other spiders, frogs, lizards and birds. Only one or two will reach adulthood.
