Tarantula and Toad

Dec 26, 2020 | Blog | 0 comments

Did you know some animals live in harmony to mutually benefit one another?

These coexisting creatures create a symbiotic relationship, such as the narrow-mouthed toad and the tarantula. Toads are typically a meal for tarantulas; however, the narrow mouthed toad resides alongside the tarantula in its damp burrow!

The toad eats ants and other vermin who seek out tarantula eggs as a food source, so the tarantula passes on an easy meal for pest protection. The toad places itself in fatal risk with a natural adversary in exchange for food and shelter!

These types of symbiotic relationships are puzzling to an evolutionist, but an obvious testament of God’s unique creative plan.
