Just grab it by the head and eat it! Chew it well though or the legs stick in your throat and make you choke, and chew it fast before it bites back!
Watch how dogs do it and copy them. Great party trick!
Good source of protein!
I found this to be a tasty way of serving them.
In a deep saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat the oil to 350°F.
With a sharp knife, sever and discard the abdomens from the two tarantulas. Singe off any of the spider's body hairs with a crème brûlée torch or butane cigarette lighter.
Dip each spider into the tempura batter to thoroughly coat. Use a slotted spoon or your hands to make sure each spider is spread-eagled (so to speak) and not clumped together before dropping it into the hot oil.
Deep-fry the spiders, one at a time, until the batter is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Remove each spider from the oil and place it on paper towels to drain.
Use a sharp knife to cut each spider in two lengthwise. Sprinkle with the paprika and serve. Encourage your guests to try the legs first and, if still hungry, to nibble on the meat-filled mesothorax, avoiding the spider's paired fangs, which are tucked away in the head region.
Looks like a common house spider, pretty harmless unless you trip over it and injure yourself. We get them regularly and it's entertaining watching the dog try to catch them as they run across the living room.
That's the baby, don't kill it cos mummy won't be chuffed and they eat the males!?
Steady on there lads! If you're not careful you'll have LACS starting an "Stop spider coursing with dogs" petition!
And you know how effective these e-petitions can be! (http://www.thestalkingdirectory.co.u...cil-here-s-Oki)

You'll need SSC1 and your trained spider tracking dog to hand if injured you don't want a wounded spider running loose around your house
