    I remember last summer when we were cleaning up my dad's land in Kempner(during the drought/burn ban), I flipped over a piece of trailer skirting to throw it in the trash pile. No big deal, right? Until we were met with this little dude:



    Its butt was literally the size of a kiwi, and just as hairy. My mom was freaking, I thought it was cool, and my dad scooped it up with the rake and tossed it on the neighbor's property.

    Oh and a brown one too! They can have nasty little dispositions!

    DH is arachnophobic so nothing with 8 legs is allowed to live, but I think spiders are cool.

    Good grief, is that a tarantula? I've only seen the ones with stripy legs.

    Yeah it's a tarantula :) This was also after a GIANT centipede came crawling out of the ground. Some of those guys are poisonous too, so that one kinda freaked me out.

    O_o that is one big spider. I'm not a huge fan of them, though I do love nice tarantula. I have 6 pet millipedes though, and think they're gorgeous XD so fluffy!

    I don't see many spiders/large creepy crawlies in my area. Just neon dragonflies, bananna spiders (occasionally. Those are huge!), baby alligators, and LOTS of snakes. Eeesh. Just last week I killed a 3 foot long Copper Head that decided to make camp in our feed room. The biggest we've ever found was a 5 1/2 foot copper though, and he killed one of our yearlings >.>

    Add that to the coral snakes, and I'm just not a huge reptile fan anymore XD

    Ok, everyone I was wanting to know if anyone would help this guy out. Located around Austin Texas, someone NEEDS to buy him. I tried, but she's unwilling to lower the price and I'm only 16 so I can only work part time. It would take me some time to be able to afford to buy him, AND be able to transport him to Abilene. I'm going down there in possibly a month, but I'm hoping someone will take this poor guy... And if you wanted I would love to buy him from you once I save the money.. But of course that's up to you. These are all her ads

    Just a couple weeks ago my boss had taken his kids to the playground. He found a baby copperhead slithering its way to the playground, and snatched it up by the head real quick. The snake was able to reach around and got a fang in his finger tip. So he went to Good Ol'(Horrible) Bayshore, and it took 3 hours to get the anti-venom. Can you believe none of the nurses there had dealt with a venomous snake bite before?! Now it looks like he may lose that nail from his left index finger. :/
