Wordless Wednesday: Tarantula

I don't need to say much, the pictures speak for themselves.

All I have to say is: We went hiking during tarantula mating season, and I thought I was going to die. And then we saw one, and I almost peed my pants. My sweet husband let us turn around after that, because Lord knows I'd have a full-blown panic attack after more than one large black tarantula.






NEVER again.
NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER.

    1. oh my goodness. how did you not have a heart attack?! I guess if you see them often in your area you may get used to them..but we are so new here to the country that it was a complete shock that they were even within a 100 mile radius!!

  2. how did you know it is tarantula matching season? i would have about died if we went hiking then. i am not a fan of spiders. i was watching that a TV show and they were in Cambodia and they fried and ate tarantulas, yuck!

    1. Hi meg! My brother in law is super into hiking in this area, and is actually more afraid of spiders than I am (as well as any other woman I know) so we happened to tell him about this experience and he was dying of laughter because he thought "everyone" knew that it was their mating season. I think if tarantulas were the last food on earth, I would starve to death! No amount of deep fried breading could take the yuck away.
