last time I was at Dumont, on the way home I saw this little guy walking down the highway. Ever at 60mph he was big enough for me to see. I scooped him up and brought him home. I was sure someone at work would want him... one guy keeps spiders, he took him home for a few weeks.... and then told me he didn't want him anymore. (he bought the cage)

Turns out he looked this guy up and he is more poisonous than the average 8 legged meany, his room mates asked him to get rid of it...LOL

So on the way to dumont tomorrow, I am going to release him in the desert right where I found him....

Cute litte bugger.

Ya real cute.. But as bad as he is how do you go about picking up one of those deadly little suckers in the wild? Don't they jump or something like that? I know they do more than Bark. Or is that only if they are from California?

I had a clam shell plastic cookie box, I dumped out the cookie and closed it around him. He is very active, he likes to jump around his cage if you move too fast.... but he isn't too bad....

I don't like this picture it makes him look way smaller than he really is. I would say if you stretched out his legs he would be about 6 inches across.

You sure you want to let it go? You sound pretty attached, and it would make an easy pet. But, it was wild, and knows what life is. You probably would break his spirit, and the newness would wear off, and then when you let him go he would not be the same spider.. Ya your better off while he still knows what wild is. :crybaby: :lol:

Erik, that just gave me the creeps. EEEWWW! :retard: My older sister (7 years older) had a trantula when I was little. I was trying to be nice one afternoon and cleaned the glass on the cage with windex. The next morning her spider was dead on his water dish. Oops!! :lol:

I wouldn't know where to even begin KT... I don't think they are deadly unless you are allergic. Mostly it's just like a severe bee sting.
