Moving a friend. (arachnophobe warning)
Outdoors should be better than my bathroom, don't you think?

9. eh - they are pretty harmeless. Big galoots, really.
they can bite, but no worse than a bee sting, I hear - I have been handling them all my life and have never been bitten. I guess they can kick off some of the hair on thier abdomens and that is supposed to be a major irritant, but I haven't ever seen that either.

4. What is that?
The only thing I've seen here that size is tarantulas.

Why did I ignore the warning. :scared:

8. Yes it seems to be in very good shape ---or else it's a female
I can't remember how the spinners are supposed to be for sex, but I know the males usually have a much more slender abdomen and that one was nice and round. Males are the ones usually seen wandering around after the rains come - looking for LOVE, baby. Females tend to be homebodies.

Don't remember scientific name, desert tarantua will have to do.

11. You're brave to live with those guys!
Have lived in Tucson several times, and no way would I have let a tarantula crawl on me much less wait to take a picture!

Holy Moley! :scared:

12. why is the spider dragging the person's arm outside?
wouldn't the spider just devour it indoors?
