I'm not really that scared of spiders (my sister is, hugely) - they are just kind - so it shouldn't be THAT hard for me to do. 


A friend of a friend turned out to have many spiders - ranging from a little spider no bigger than a nail to a huge one that would cover your palm completely. Since we visited him lately for a few drinks, I asked him if I could hold one of his 'babies' and he agreed. Unfortunately it wasn't the biggest one he had, as this one was in an aggressive mood that day, but it was still pretty big. And tell you what - it was kind of cute, really :D I always thought these big spiders are, I don't know, somehow wiry and cold, and overall unpleasant to hold, but this one was soft, even teddy-bear-ish, and very calm. I guess my opinion on these creatures changed a bit :)

To tell you the truth, I had to drink a glass of whisky first XD

I saw it in my science class. My teacher collects all types of bugs, reptiles and amphibians. He let us hold his pet tarantual and it was suprisingly not scary, and it was really soft.

I've always been very afraid of spiders. When I was visiting the Mayan ruins at Tikal with my parents, the guide found a tarantula and gave us the chance to hold it if we wanted. In my case, though, he just popped the spider on my chest and it crawled up to my neck!

There aren't many creatures I am scared of, but I am terrified of spiders. I know it's a mostly irrational fear and someday I would like to overcome it.

I was at Longleat Safari Park and got given the chance to hold a massive spider, so i took it! It was so so light, you could hardly even feel it.
