TERRIFIED of Huntsman SPIDERS, but BUYS a new ORANGE one !!! (feat. Jumping Spiders)

  • Published: 30 January 2019
  • I’m sure many of you know that I’m terrified of Huntsman Spiders. I know they’re not near close to what a tarantula is capable of doing, but I’m not afraid of the bite ~ It’s more when when they decide to make a run for it. Huntsman Spiders are extremely fast and the way they run just sends chills down my spine. I’m not dissing Huntsman Spiders, it’s just how I feed when I’m around one that is free. Still really cool creatures, though!

    So with that, I decided to go out and get myself a Heteropoda davidbowie, which is a species of orange-coloured Huntsman Spider... yes, ORANGE!! I'm not too sure of its age, or when the seller obtained it, but it's already a mature adult. Check the video out to see it in action, as I prepare its enclosure and get it rehoused :D

      @iPlayOverwatch 69 honest. No sarcasm. Which part do you mean. If you grew up in the Aussie outback like me you'd know immediately no sarcasm. I was catching brown snakes when I was 9, 10 and killing them and leaving them on people's door steps and wait to here the screams. I am truly ashamed of myself and hate myself for it. That's where the 'never kill unless your lifes in danger' comes from.

          (I'm Australian hehe) I remember earlier this year - I was studying in the kitchen and my dad was outside and i saw a massive huntsman crawling down the wall. I have never caught one in my life - my dad does it. And oh man the adrenaline going through my body as it bolted down the wall on to the ground and through my legs as im attempting to catch it. I succeeded but i couldn't stop shaking!! I'm not even scared of them so I don't know why I was hahahahahah

                        Why not get a gopro? Or any similar hardware that can help you use both hands which will give you more maneuverability

                              Why didn't you just flip the container in the enclosure? You could have removed the black part and beckon her to walk off the lid...

                              Sometimes I feel that you're more dramatic than you need to be and you lose common sense in exchnage for theatrics as a result.

                              Not enjoyable to watch anymore.

                                              Hey bro, I truly admire your Raw passion and true love for your spiders, I couldn't even be in the same room, without screaming and running out of the room, I'm hoping maybe you can start giving us a brief description of your babies, to teach us if they are dangerous etc..... Even tho I'm deathly affeaid of spiders I love your page and am hoping to learn so much more about spiders.

And so I looked at my clothes and literally 3 inches above them there was a huge huntsman spider just chilling on the wall. Coming from Germany, where there are no dangerous animals whatsoever, I was pretty scared to move my stuff. Did it anyways, and all of us decided to change on the other side of the room that day hahahah
