We have been a part of insecta rama for many years we like educating kids about good spider some bad spiders.
They are not all bad but there are some dangerous ones they have to be aware of.
Like a brown recluse or a black widow.

I was a little distracted, very scary.
I don't think i've ever seen a spider up that close.
When did you get goldie?

She was about the size of a quarter when i got her.
You can see she has grown quite a bit.
She has more going to do and when she's done shall be bigger than my hand.
We call her and ate like a kitten.
She's very sweet and gentle.
