Last night we went on a family walk and we came across this spider. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it was HUGE. I have seen tarantulas at zoos and exibits, but this was in the street right beside my house. It was bigger than a 50 cent piece and was disgusting. It as covered with hundreds of babies on its back...and was really neat to watch.
I tried to send Larry back to kill it, since it was so near my house and meant they would likely end up in my yard. Aana had a full melt down...and started quoting my teachings to her, but took them a BIT out of context. "Jesus made everyone and we are ALL special...It has a life and is special too...it is just a Mom trying to take care of her babies just like you..."
