Eight itsy-bitsy spiders are calling the Brevard Zoo home after being illegally imported and confiscated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, WFTV reported.

The quarter-sized spiders -- four Brazilian whiteknee tarantulas and four Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantulas -- were likely bred from illegally wild-caught tarantulas since Brazil doesn’t allow the export of fully-grown tarantulas, according to the Brevard Zoo.

The creepy crawlers won’t always be small. The Brazilian whiteknee tarantulas can grow to a leg span of 8 and a half inches, while Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantulas are among the largest in the world, reaching a leg span of 11 inches.

“We hope to use these arachnids to help zoo guests learn more about the importance of spiders and the impacts of wildlife trafficking,” said Michelle Smurl, the zoo’s director of animal programs.

The spiders will be featured in the new Rainforest Revealed exhibit when it opens later this year, according to Smurl.
