    The size of a human face. Its legs, which have unique daffodil-yellow markings, span a massive 20cm (eight inches).

    It's actually not hideous, as far as spiders go.

    There are some you see and you can almost feel them crawling on you. :zomg:

    Not really that giant, the Poecilotheria subfamily of tarantula was first documented over 100 years ago and at least 3 members grow bigger than this one. The Peacock Tarantula (Poecilotheria metallica) is the one you wana look out for, its bigger and a lot more poisonous.

    I honestly do not get people who have spiders/snakes as pets. I'm not sure about snakes but spiders don't show any emotion so are these owners just trying to be edgy or something?

    It's a hobby.

    You can have an interest in spiders just like you can with collecting stamps or memorabillia, except spiders have the added fun of being alive, and wanting to eat your face :cool:

    I remember using the toilet there once and suddenly realising a big red lizard on my leg.

    The size of a human face... coincidence?

    Well, probably.

    I just hope these things never evolve to have wings.

    I don't see the daffodil pattern?

    I love pokies though, very pretty Tarantulas, sadly the only one I had died last year...
