Gabriel Guallo of Ecuador's Quichua tribe stands with a tarantula on his face to demonstrate how he is planning to break a world record, in El Tena. Guallo hopes to carry 250 tarantulas on his body for 60 seconds during a special ceremony in February 2013 to break what he says is the existing record for most tarantulas carried on the body (240 tarantulas for 30 seconds).
