      I was really scared about what it was going to do. When we contacted our friend, I got all the Tarantula info I needed. They *can* bite and their venom can kill but, they can’t bite us. Mouth is too small. And, they have docile personalities. This juvenile was excitable because it was mating season and because we had put it in an old coffee can.

      My chiro was certainly overjoyed to get the spider. It was an interesting encounter.

      I followed that dragonfly for ten minutes trying to catch him.
