there is a Nat'l Geo special that concentrates on blondi

i think the title would be something like National Geographic: Predators: Giant Tarantulas

... or something like that.

That's frustrating to hear, lol. I know these shows exist. I watch the Discovery Channel ALL THE TIME, and I have yet to see any of them. :wall:

Check out youtube. The quality usually sucks, and you usually don't get some guy with an accent narrating like on the discovery channel, but there are some great vids on there.
