    I was unpacking my beautiful new A huriana (thanks Harry!), when it ran up my arm and onto my back. Naturally it chose a spot that I could not reach :wall: :wall: :wall: . I spent the next half hour attempting to move it away from my back, before I carefully maneuvered out of my t shirt. I was late to class, but my instructor was quite understanding when I showed her why lol.

    "dear teacher,

    i was late to class because i had a tarantula on my back. please forgive me."

    amazingly, both my instructor and adviser would understand this. they know i have a lot of tarantulas :wicked: i *so* don't belong in the animal science/physiology departments...
  6. Yeah, I had the same experience with a 15-16 cm C. Brevipes running on my back when I was trying to document it. My gf had to take the pics :eek:

    Thats funny... however... i would be laughing even harder if it was a Sc. subspinipes pede or a P. murinus!

    Thanks! I had the exact same thing happen twice with my G aureo. He is a 2" juvie and as I live alone I just waited until he decided to crawl down on to the couch and I scooped him up. Next time if one of my T buddies does that I'll grab my camera!
