His Best shot at Getting a pet Tarantula

A whirlwind weekend filled with a military parade and exhibit and a trip to the annual bug fair at the Natural History Museum.

Yes, those are his hands....


Yes. That is a live tarantula.


And no, he did not bring one home to live with us.  [Yet.]

If you squirm at this, wait until you see what he had for a snack...

Happy Monday!

Tarantulas are so cool. We have them here around the house. He's brave to hold it though. I can imagine the feet tickling his hands. Yuck.

That's So cool! I love that he held it, what a brave boy. I don't know if I would willing hold a Tarantula, spider are not one of my favorite "bugs".

Crazy that he is holding it! We had a pet Tarantula when I was growing up. My brother got it from his science class. It was supposed to be just for the summer and we ended up having it for years.

I still cant believe he's holding it. I didnt mind having one, but I never wanted to touch ours!

I draw the line at big spiders. Why, I don't know as we have two pet rats.

So what was snack?
