I’m not usually afraid of critters that inspire other people to jump on chairs and shriek.
I got lucky with a Dad that was an Ag major and a creature lover. He’d catch and encourage us to handle snakes – harmless ones – frogs, toads (yes, I’ve been peed on countless times by toads), lizards, salamanders, geckos…
You get the picture.
However, spiders are still kinda creepy. Maybe it’s the aerobic exercise we get when flailing through an unnoticed web. Maybe it’s because the only things they resemble live in the sea. They DO look fairly “alien.”
My grandfather (Mom’s dad) used to say he thought they were from another planet. I think he was kidding.
Now THIS spider is adorable. I hope Pixar gives this animator a feature film for this character (voiced by his nephew).
This is so stinking cute.
