Bigger Spider


I love this image. It's from Guatemala, I was staying in a guest house where the owner asked if we wanted to see some wild spiders in his garden. Ah, you mean tarantulas...

The spiders live in the garden, under rocks, in little holes etc. He coaxes them out and then puts his hand over the hole to stop them getting back in, then picks them up. They are quite docile and only bite if threatened. You generally only ever see them wandering about if they are males, looking for females...

I don't mind spiders. But I would not like to hold one. Just don't like them.
