I posted a couple of months back about buying an Oklahoma Brown Tarantula. It took me quite some time to feel confident enough to hold her. Once I worked up the nerve I had a friend photograph the moment. I have to say it wasn't as horrid as I thought it would be. She was very sweet, and did not try to bite me. If she would have decided to sink her fangs into my hand I'm afraid she would have been a "flying spider". As it is, all is well and I am encouraged to continue to hold her and conquer this fear forever!
