    They're baaaaaaack

    Saw my first two tarantulas on the road as I was coming down SG last night, 'bout 6:30 or so. Seems a bit early, usually I don't start seeing these guys for another couple of weeks. It can get pretty dodgy (literally) in the height of the season!

    I saw one coming down on Saturday in the afternoon. The son gave it such a long shadow it looked huge. Like in a monster movie.

    Saw a dead one a couple weeks ago, and a crawler last night on NGR.

    Every year when I see my first ones I think it's too early... but I must be wrong because it's the same every year.
