I was nearly sitting on this little desert hairy tarantula. I was taking a picture of a bright red grasshopper be i guess the Tarantula just blended in so well that i didnt even notice him when i sat down to take a picture of this grasshopper if he wanted to he could have ran right up the back of my shoe and into my shirt.

Desert hairy Tarantula’s are vary doctile tarantula’s that should not be feared, they are just little creatures in a big world that is misunderstood. I hope people will learn to respect creatures like this even though they are “different” from what we are used to.
