So,A few years ago, while studying in Guyana, Naskrecki he followed a well-known procedure. However this time his investigation turned into a nightmare walk in the rainforest in Guyana, when he heard rustling as if something were creeping underfoot. When he turned on his flashlight, he expected to see a small mammal, such as a possum or a rat.
But it was something a lot creepier...
Despite its name, the birdeater doesn't usually eat birds, although it is certainly capable of killing small mammals. The spider hunts in leaf litter on the ground at night, so the chances of it encountering a bird are very small. However, if it found a nest, it could easily kill the parents and the chicks!
The spider will eat frogs and insects, but its main prey is actually earthworms, which come out at night when it's humid.
I must admit that I admire this man’s passion and braveness…but I wouldn’t even go to a place like this! However due to such passionate people we are able to know Earth and its creatures better! Well done Mr. Naskrecki!
