What Would You Do if You Found a Tarantula on Your Back Porch? [Video]
It's a question I have never asked myself. Thankfully, I have never had to because, honestly, I can't even imagine it. I saw the movies Arachnophobia and Eight Legged Freaks and they were both pretty horrifying. And this from a person who doesn't even really mind spiders. But I would mind THIS one! Look at this thing my friend Shannon found on her Sand Springs (a.k.a. Jurassic Park, Oklahoma) back porch over the weekend. It is a monster tarantula and it scared the crap out of her.
Yeah, uh no! Shannon's like me in that she doesn't kill anything. So, the giant hairy spider went out to the woods where it will probably eat children like Stephen King's It and grow to be the size of a Chevy Trailblazer. I would never kill an animal or an insect, but this bad boy had me screaming "W-W-R-D?" What would a big can of Raid do?
Shannon let the thing go. I would to, though I would likely have Lord of the Rings-inspired nightmares that a big spider was wrapping me in up and preserving me in her web so she could eat my face later. What would YOU do if you found a tarantula on your back porch?
