    True, the fangs are different. Spiders are broken down into two main groups, the true spiders, and the tarantulas. However, both tarantulas and true spiders are in the same order, Araneae, making them both spiders. Kinda like the difference between frogs and toads. Both are technically the same thing, they're all in the order Anura. Tarantulas are all the spiders in the family Theraphosidae. They share the sub-order Mygalomorphae withe the funnel web and trap-door spiders. Most other spiders belong to the sub-order Araneaomorphae. So for now tarantulas are spiders, but givem a few more million years or so, and they might be seperate, along with the trapdoors and funnel-webs. Just couldn't help myself, sorry. I love doing research. It's my next favorite thing to identifying species for people :rolleyes:
