    If I see one near me it must die so I don't even visit the reptile houses in zoos. Shalom
    Exactly that's how I am about spiders. Ugh Even the word spider SPIDER
    Creeps me out!
    Weird, since I I have always loved the natural world, camping, etc
    DBA what are your thoughts on this? What's with the critter pbobias?
    Did a giant tarantula eat me in a past life?

    Outnabout, I have pretty severe arachnophobia... Even though I love nature and animals, I just cannot handle any type of arachnid.

    I know what caused it. When I was 3, my aunt gifted my 7 year old brother a pet tarantula. I vividly remember how he used to torture me with it. He even went so far as to place it on me when I was sleeping. Imagine waking up with a huge hairy spider on your chest.

    I blame my big brother for the majority of my hang-ups...with good reason!

    I feel like we've had this conversation before LOL. I don't like spiders. They're nasty and hairy and beady eyed. I can stand to be around them, but seriously, don't touch me.

    A couple years ago at my dad's land in Kempner(Near Harker Heights/Killeen area) we were picking up trailer skirting from an old tenant and this little guy/gal popped out of the ground to say hello. This was after an 8-9 inch long centipede came to visit, too.

    I raised a rose haired tarantula when I was 5, we named it Rosie. Only after Rosie died did we realize it was a male all along... Whoops. Haha

    I understand all creatures have a place in the world, but I'd prefer snakes/bugs/multi-legged and/or poisonous creatures find a place far away from me.

    Happy Friday! Is it 5 o'clock yet?

    My very first job was at the local pet store. I was excellent at handling the snakes and the spiders. My mother had to call before she came to the store because she wouldn't be able to handle seeing me with a 2 ft rat snake draped around my neck, or wrapped around me like a belt. *rolls eyes*

    I could tell you snake stories..... but I have a better one.

    Your illustrious leader (that would be me) LOCKED HERSELF IN THE CHICKEN COOP THIS MORNING.

    Lucky for the birds, it was just daylight, so I was no longer in chupacabra form.
