"A highly defensive species of arachnid that releases sharp spikes when threatened. May have porcupine DNA."

The Tarantula is a Hardmode enemy that can be found in and around Spider Nests after Borean Strider has been defeated. Like other spider-like enemies, Tarantulas are capable of climbing background walls as well as through platforms but revert to acting like a fighter mob when there is no background wall. When damaged, Tarantulas release hairs all around them that inflict the Acid Venom debuff on hit players.
