WHAT IS THAT!??

WHAT IS THAT!??

A man in Rachos Palos Verdes was shocked by an eight legged creature as he was riding his bike down a trail. Upon first glance he actually thought it was a smaller remote control car, until he noticed the hair, and legs. Yes, that is a real tarantula.

His son of course was very curious as tarantulas are not at all common in that area. They all stood around and took pictures to post to social media, using a water bottle and a size 13 shoe next to the fury giant spider to show size perspective.  They used the water bottle to gently guide the tarantula back out of harm’s way.

Tarantulas are very docile spiders. They are called the gentle giant because they will not act aggressively towards humans unless of course they feel threatened. Their sheer size can be intimidating and the cause of spider nightmares, but if they do bite a human, it is not poisonous.

If you see one of these gentile giants in your home, trying to move it to the outside is best if you can. Although, understood some people will just not want to get that close.
