over a month ago i discovered this tarantula. i'll call her 'tara' - she's a female (big and hairy). don't laugh but another way to supposedly tell males/females apart.....
"females will have larger and wider mouths than males, who have thin mouths." ha!
whenever i walk the east side of 'prairie hill,' i look in on her. often there's a web over the hole so she can catch prey. other times i can see her moving around below. today she was out and sitting on the rock furniture that i arranged for her some time back.
on two other occasions i've found some tarantula body parts outside the hole - not sure what that was about. i have the fangs and now that i think about it, i put a leg piece in my pants pocket the other day and forgot about it,,, lol.
look tara grabbed the flower i dropped down!
but she headed back underground,,,
she let me get a few pictures of her today. tara's never been aggressive, but rather shy.
i want to enjoy the sight of her as long as i can...
happy weekend -- hope you make great discoveries.
