World's Most Beautiful Tarantula in Peril

  • Published: 08 December 2018
  • This is the epic story of how the most beautiful tarantula in the world, with her entrancing, innate arachnid beauty, took her crown as goddess of the Antiverse (the Ant Room). In a scramble against time to harvest her webbing to keep our fire ants (the Fire Nation) from escaping their paludarium set up (the Selva de Fuego), we are caught in the middle of a double crisis. Watch these two crises unfold and how they are resolved, in today's epic Tarantula vs. Fire Ant story. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    Greetings, AC Family! Wait until you meet the new goddess of the Antiverse! She's absolutely stunning and even got me in a trance! More importantly, though, her webbing will keep the Fire Nation contained in their setup, but there's been a setback and a big problem. Hope you guys enjoy today's video of the happenings of the Antiverse. Tune in to the Premiere and hit SET REMINDER so you join us to watch together! Oh yeah, and don't forget to hit the LIKE button, leave me a COMMENT, and SUSBCRIBE (hit the bell) if you haven't joined the family, yet! Thank you! Love you, guys! See you all shortly at the Premiere!

      I'm quite positive i've found a new species of spider the summer of 2017 and have detailed videos of her and her egg sacs. I have researched for two years now and i still cannot find out what species it is. I will gladly upload the videos to my YT channel tonight.

      Her hair is so beautiful

      It shimmers in the light

      She has a radiant glow

      Her face so bright

      She wears only silk

      That she's made herself

      And those beautiful legs

      Are like nothing else

      Her bright red lipstick

      Her blue and green crown

      She's definitely a goddess

      The only one in town

      Her dark eyes glisten

      So cute on her face

      That blue is a compliment

      Such a beautiful carapace

      She protects the antiverse

      And keeps the Fire Nation at bay

      With her love and spinnerets

      The antiverse happy, day after day

    @7:33: That sound that the tarantula made was like the snarl of a panther.

    @9:55: This time, it sounded like a loud hiss from a fairly large snake.

    @10:22: I, uh, don't know what animal sound I could compare this hiss towards. Any suggestions?

                    Mmm, I'd probably call her Azura, since azure is a lovely shade of blue. Or perhaps Lazula, in reference to lapis lazuli, a deep blue gemstone that her legs remind me of.

                                          I would personally name her Aqua, but i also think a name like Azulia would be pretty as well.

                                                I suggest naming her Amara. The name in Japanese means blessing, gift, or ruler.
