  • Forget brains! If you haven't seen that Octopus Teacher bit would say watch it! Cuddling an octopus is much easier than a giant spider.

  • This is such a bad idea. Tarantulas are not deadly 99.9% of the time. Their bites can hurt and make you feel sick, but they are *extremely* unlikely to kill. This is a New World tarantula, meaning it has urticating hairs on its abdomen (it was flicking hairs when it was scratching its stomach). This tarantula was obviously telling him to leave it the hell alone. They're not dangerous creatures as long as you don't provoke them, and this one was warning him. It's already risky enough to handle a captive T, handling a wild one is even worse. Please don't handle tarantulas unless you REALLY have to. It's not worth stressing yourself out or the T, and both of you have the risk of hurting yourselves.

  • at 0.42 after the spider flicked his hairs at him a second time looked like he went for his knife and then thought better of it, I bet it took all his self control not to get up and stamp on it, after it flicked him the third time, I would have possible broken after the first flick.

  • I love tarantulas. I kept new and old world both. The species he is handling gets a good-deal bigger. I've seen them grab snakes and overpower them. It is creepy I'll give you that. I've seen them as big as a large dinner plate. They don't bother me as much as the humongous centapedes. They can get a foot long. A good deal more venomous too. Xanax alert: I actually have a big nasty colorful one from Vietnam, - running loose in my apartment ☠ No worries; except I sleep on the floor.
