Fuzzy Wuzzy

Monsoon season brings out all sorts of summer-time friends. Have a visit with this guy, he was hanging out on our patio.






Tarantula.




Bigger than my hand.


My puppy was way toooo curious.

I've heard they often come out en masse when it rains, I haven't seen it yet though. One is fun, maybe kinda cute, not sure about hundreds!

eek.I am glad you mentioned the size. He just looks like a harmless little spider in the photos. I never considered the danger these creatures pose to pets until you mentioned your puppy. I can't imagine what a cat would do. I would hope that they have some sense.
