I didn't particularly care for the arachnid I found in my closet.
I thought he was disgustingly, stomach-churningly huge!
Then...Gypsy found this fellow:
Do you see him?
He is easily twice the size of the critter in the closet!
(I apologize for the less than wonderful photo.
I had to grab Mr. Dreamy's phone - and his
phone doesn't do that great a job of taking pictures!)
I learned something new this weekend.
I learned that tarantulas can be found in southern Colorado.
It seems that males, after 7-10 years,
develop long legs and abandon their burrows
to seek female companionship.
The males are on the move in the cool of the day
from late summer to early fall.
