I don't like spiders either... or scorpions...

I look calm, but I was panicking on the inside!
If you took all the intestines out of your body and stretched them end to end... you would die.

Actually you'd be surprised how soft and gentle the touch of a big tarantula is.  Wierd I know, but there you have it.

If I remember right, the Scorpion was noticeably heavier.  The Tarantula was pretty light and when it moved I didn't feel much.  (but then my mind may have been numbed with panic)

Hey, that scorpion is trying to lose weight- you could at least try to be supportive!

LOL  I actually remember that.

Spiders, especially tarantulas, freak me out.  ESPECIALLY the goliath bird eater.  Have you guys ever seen one of those?  They're about the size of a large dinner plate!   :ahhh  Were there any of those at Gatorland?

I'm not entirely comfortable with spiders either, but I sure as hell wasn't going to wimp out in front of forum members!  I'd never live it down!

We don't have any goliaths at Gatorland, but I have actually held one.  Pretty big, heavy spider.  Took up my whole hand, and it wasn't even stretched out.

I could TOTALLY see Def and 665ae lookin a bit trepidatious about holding the arachnids, but they gutted it out.

Only big insect I've held was a giant African Millipede.

I did NOT like the idea of all those little legs ( :ahhh ) but in the end it wasn't to bad.  Besides my wife and three year old were watching.  ::)

We used to use those in the same show we use the arachnids in.  They were pretty cool, unless they pooped on ya.

Why, are their poop just as long as their bodies?  :D

I just linked to this thread in another discussion, and, while re-reading it, I decided it was worth being today's Dirty Dozen Thread Necro!

Orlando was a great experience, not just because of the SHOT Show, or the behind the scenes visit at Gatorland, but also because I got to meet THREE other MTO members on that trip!  Mikey (665ae), Johnny (Latino Heat, Navejero, Doggy Guru and others I can't quite recall!) and another guy who hasn't been around in a while either, Andy, aka Polish Sumgui.

It was a great time and I consider myself very fortunate to have met so many of our members over the years, and look forward to meeting a lot more of you in the future!
