This looks like me when I see a spider. I am terrified of them!
I got up in the middle of the night to go pee and I didn't bother to put my glasses on. When I went into the bathroom, there was a spider in the bathtub. The thing is, it was so big I could actually SEE it WITHOUT my glasses on! And yes, I am totally blind without them.
I ran into the bedroom and told my husband to get up and dispose of the unwanted visitor using our bathtub. He walks into the bathroom and he says, "Wow! He's a big'un. I'm gonna catch him!"
So, he proceeds to catch this thing in a plastic container. My husband poked holes in the top of the lid and he even went as far as to read up on how to take care of this thing. He would put drops of water into it for him to drink and fed it bugs he found in the yard.
The thing actually GREW in the two weeks it lived as our "pet" because he relocated it to another plastic container.
He joked with me stating that he took such good care of this one that we should get a tarantula. I very promptly told him to go for it, but I hope he and it would be very happy together because I wouldn't live with it!
|For size comparisons.|
He already came across a remote controlled tarantula that he scared me with. He thought it was the funniest thing ever. The stupid thing has tiny hairs on it and everything! When its on and moving, the legs even move like a real spider! Creeps me out just looking at it!
