I've seen a documentary where amazonian(?) tribesmen would go out hunting for meat, and tarantulas were their 'plan B'.
They were lured out of their lairs by little sticks and caught 'em, wrapped them in a leaf with their legs bunched together above the body - the poison sack was removed, they were cooked on a fire, the fine hairs were rubbed off, and the rest was eaten. They used the tarantula's chelicerae as toothpicks.
Tastes like shrimp.
