    Most probably, almost stepped on it, eyes are going.
    Anyway, this spider brings bad luck if it comes into your house, MIL killed it and put the body in a glass.
    Yesterday the spider witch doctor comes round and casts some spells, throws rice on the floor to remove the bad luck the spider brought.

    But we don't have humongous ones in Europe, my cat used to catch the "big" ones.

    Welcome to the Buffalo Board, andrea...

    The Chilean rose tarantula (Grammostola rosea), also known as the rose hair tarantula, the Chilean fire tarantula, or the Chilean red-haired tarantula (depending on the color morph), is probably the most common species of tarantula available in American and European pet stores today, due to the large number of wild-caught specimens exported cheaply from their native Chile into the pet trade. The species is also from Bolivia and Argentina.

    G. rosea is a common pet of tarantula hobbyists. Females have been known to live as long as 20 years, but due to the limited time they have been available on the market (and hence for extensive study), they may live considerably longer than 20 years. Considerable confusion exists between this species and Grammostola porteri, with some arguing that many of the "G. rosea" in the pet trade actually are G. porteri.

    Heh! Once lived in a semi rural area called Tumbledown Dick in Oz (adjacent to the old mens home?). Was outside & heard bloodcurdling scream from her-in-doors in kitchen. Electrocution? Tiger or other snake?
    Nup! A huntsman on the ceiling, dropped onto her head & strolled across her face. He/she was cowering under the fridge & Missus ,a quivering mess @ the other end of kitchen.
    I negotiated with him to come out & he would get safe passage outside on condition he refrained from romancing her again. Job done!

    It's the ugly & dangerous funnelweb spiders that intimidate me.
