What is the largest spider?

Goliath Birdeater is the largest spider. The size of a catcher’s mitt and sprouting inch-long fangs, this relative of the tarantula feeds on rodents and even birds that wander into its burrow. The giant huntsman spider of Southeast Asia has longer legs, but the Goliath birdeater beats it in body size.  The Goliath can reach up to 1-foot in body length and has 1-inch long fangs. The Goliath has tiny hairs on its body that it shoots at whoever or whatever is threatening it. Its bite isn’t deadly to humans (unless you’re allergic), but if you get bit by one, expect to experience severe pain, nausea and profuse sweating.
