Another tarantula

We were sitting by the pool yesterday afternoon when I saw this little guy in our yard. He was about five feet away and running straight at us! I don't even want to think of what would have happened if I hadn't seen him coming at us. It's not every day that you yell, "Ah, tarantula!" I got better pictures of this one than the last one so I wanted to share some. This makes three tarantulas that we have seen in our yard or on our street. The one good thing about seeing these tarantulas and other huge spiders all the time (the huge spiders are usually inside our house) is that it's making me less afraid of the little ones. And I'm pretty proud of myself for getting close enough to even take some pictures.

Very hairy


This is for you, Mom. We tried to save this one and just throw it over the fence since you made me feel a little bad about killing the last one, but...


...it fell in the pool. But then we threw it over the fence.

I Can't believe mom would make you feel bad killing that nasty thing. I guess she has s soft spot for them from living in Arizona. Yuck!!!!!!!!!!

I think you should have put it on Harry's face and watched Marv try to kill it with a bat at the house down the street from yours...just a suggestion.

Dad would like to suggest the wide tape method of trapping and then suffocating the tarantula!! Could you imagine!!! Sick
