Tarantulas might be dangerous spiders, but not if you eat them, as the Piaora people of Venezuela often do.
Hunting tarantulas is an ancient tradition for the Piaora Indians of Venezuela. They consider the huge spiders to be intermediaries between the living and the dead, and even eat them. José, one of the last young boys of the tribe to want to become a shaman, takes us on a hunting expedition.
