sadly, i know this actually.  i just zoned out while typing!  i am on a 
tarantula mailing list and there are a couple women who have dinnerplate 
size spiders (the goliaths).  i send them madagascar hissing roaches to 
feed 'em!  i like that the biggest one so far is still around!

but i suspect they really can't get much bigger, eh?  was the size of 
ancient ARTHROPODS (hehe) because of less air pressure?  more oxygen? 
different predators?  what do we know?
