This has been a weird week. Almost every night I go out hunting scorpions. I had hardly seen any . . one or two a week until this week. I killed 38 scorpions, all outside, in one week. We killed . . Vince did it . . a snake in the chicken coop. I got stung by a spider. And, I went out to water some plants, reached down to turn the water faucet on and just beneath the faucet was this guy.
It’s a tarantula of some kind. They don’t really scare me . . not like snakes and scorpions, but we don’t see many tarantulas around here. We saw two or three in the shop not long after we moved here and I don’t think we’ve seen one since. He kinda caught me by surprise. They eat bugs so I wish we had more of them! Outside . . not inside.
I’m hoping for a week with no snakes in the coop, fewer scorpions, no spider bites and more tarantulas outside!
