The Tarantula is an animal from Impossible Creatures. It belongs to the 15 animals within the Insect Invasion expansion.

DescriptionEdit

Tarantula, name applied to a species of European wolf spider (see Spider), whose bite is not dangerous. The name is generally applied in the United States to the so-called American tarantulas. These are large, hairy spiders occurring in the southwestern United States, Central America, South America, and other New World tropical regions. They feed on insects and a variety of small animals. A large species of this group has a bite that is painful but never, so far as accurate records show, fatal to humans. New World species of tarantulas can rub urticating hairs off of their abdomens, releasing an irritating and blinding cloud of fine, barbed hairs.

Strategic ValueEdit

A strong melee unit for its size, the Tarantula is an effective unit at low ranks for this reason alone. However, it also has the Disorienting Barbs ability, which eliminates the bonuses that enemy units get from Pack Hunter and Herding. Mixing a few creatures with Tarantula tails into your army can have a significant effect on the battle against units equipped with pack and herd.
