Big Hairy Spiders!

...



It's tarantula mating season in the Bay Area!

The male are roaming the slopes of nearby Mount Diablo, looking for ladies.

Of course, we had the join the fun.




My new intern Alex meets her first wild tarantula.




Jeff is fearless.

I think our next outing will involve scorpions?

Anyone want to join us?

Hey Now, Lisa!

If I lived out that way I would join you in a heartbeat. I like spiders and snakes. ;)
Two of the four I saw this year:

I bet you just wanna fill your car up with those big spiders and stock your house with them, eh? Can you imagine what your neighbors would do if you ran outside with one of those on your broom while cleaning out the place?
