Advertisement I didn't mean to start a heated debate here! The fact of the matter is, I had no idea what was going on when I saw it happening. I thought the Tarantulas might have been playing dead as they were being dragged. I did not know they were paralyzed. I thought they were going to be eaten and it made me sad. Once I had them and did some research when cell phone reception kicked back in, I realized what was going on. At that point I couldn't just dump them on the side of the road. The fact of the matter is the Tarantulas and I are in this situation and I'm not just going to throw them out. I'm trying to take responsibility here and ask for constructive pointers. Telling me I messed up is not constructive. I already feel bad enough and I'm trying to do the right thing. I understand it is a long process and I'm game to try my best. I know that there's potential that not even one will survive, but there's more potential if I get some good suggestions from people who know the species well, then if I were just to throw them out in a field at this point. I have been told bye another individual that I have both males and females. I will post pictures so you can all decide.
