A visitor

We decided to move the trailer to a different site here at Pio Pico. It wasn’t that the site we were at was bad, we just decided to move… easy to do when your house is on wheels. Anyway, Dave pulled the trailer forward and there was a good sized tarantula hiding under the trailer! We had seen a couple tarantulas earlier but didn’t have the camera with us…but this time the camera was within grabbing distance! So I have a photo and video of our little visitor. Pretty amazing, I’ve never seen a tarantula in the wild, kinda cool!

Photo: I had Dave put his hand down by the tarantula so it would give you an idea of the size.
