Souleater, your monster spider got scooped up and 're-homed' safely in the Arachnophobia thread, where he/she will no doubt be happy scaring the pants off everyone lol.
While I'm in here.... before Covid struck, I was thinking about having a birthday treat by taking myself and a few close friends off to somewhere where you can do one of those 'big spiders are friendly' experience things, and end up having a tarantula nestling in the palm of my hand while smiling fixedly at the camera, saying 'hurry up, it's moving!' to my friends taking photos. Has anyone tried doing one of those things, as a cure for their arachnophobia? What was it like? How did it go? Did it work as a cure? I'm never gonna love spiders - it's not like they're red pandas or anything - and I do find them creepy and unnerving, even though I admire them as amazing and often useful creatures.
Will I ever hold a tarantula in my hand......? That remains to be seen.
