Advertisement My wild caught male az blonde died today in my hand. He was a very mild mannered and a docile tarantula. My kids loved him. I never thought I would be attached to a spider. He was great. I saved him from crossing a highway about 4 months ago. He was alive but struggling to walk today. I picked him up then he just stopped moving. The way he was walking I knew the end was near. RIP my friend, Aragog.
