Footsteps of a Spider

video
Something ran against my foot in the dark. I turned on the light thinking by the size and the sound of footsteps that it was a very large mouse. Nope, it was just a giant spider. 

I flipped the trash can over top of it, ran to get my camera, then carefully dragged the thing outside.

Make sure your audio is up when you play this so you can hear its steps. 

Moral of the story, be careful around spiders so large that you can clearly hear their footsteps.

They say tarantulas are harmless and a lot of people have them as pets. You won't catch me playing with one though.

They live here in California too. At times of the year they start a migration sort of thing and if you are driving down the back roads there will be thousands crossing the road. Most of them just go flying with the wind as you pass by but I'm sure there are a few that stay right where they were when we passed :)

I'm not afraid of spiders but that one is a little....large.....

Glad he was in your house and not mine. I just get toads.
