Yes seriously, the Hubster went out to the garage this morning and came back to tell me "it looks like someone decided to leave you a Tarantula in that plastic tub outside the doors!"
After a moments panic(me) and thought, we both immediately knew it was our friend Tom and a quick call confirmed it. He couldn't remember if I was fascinated or scared of Tarantula's and so when this one turned up in his Dairy, he decided I'd be interested!
Apparently his female worker at the Dairy almost screamed the place down, when it jumped about a foot and landed on her. I think I'd have died on the spot!
The Hubster warily put his hand in the picture, so you could get an idea of size - pretty big huh, but only 2/3rds grown. Anyway, Tom probably did me a favour, I now know what they look like close-up and maybe it won't be quite so scary if I come across one. And no we didn't kill it, we released it on some pasture land, as they aren't poisonous and do alot of good.
