I got to handle a tarantula for the first time ever at the Portland Metro Reptile Expo! Courtesy of South Sound Reptiles (I think)! I don’t remember the species. :c
As someone who’s handled lots of cockroaches and large(ish) beetles, I was expecting something scratchier and heavier, but they’re so light-footed and dainty, I couldn’t even believe how cute it was.
AS: thats a Chaco Golden Knee Tarantula! and yes they are so light you can barely feel them walking on you!

I found this really cool new website called you.regettingold.com that brings on more existential crisis and gives you totally cool information.
There’s a lot more information there I didn’t post, but try it out for yourself!
The last one “compared to others” really hits hard, it shows you how many people born on your birthday are still alive vs. how many died.
Seeing how fast the earth moves made me feel really really really weird.

I love animals, and I know I’m going to hell for this, but my first thought was ‘Whack-A-mole’. I’m a bad person…
