The word tarantula is defined as a large wolf spider which is native to the southern parts of Europe. It was once considered to be the cause of the physical condition which is known as tarantism, which involves uncontrollable movements of the body. It is a large hairy spider which lives mostly in those countries which have a tropical climate. It can inflict bites which are painful but not highly venomous.

Tarantulas belong to the family Theraphosidae. The word is derived from two Greek words, the word thera, which means wild animal or beast and the word phos, which means light. There are many subfamilies to which tarantulas belong.
