Tarantula in the Parking Lot


Found this guy crossing my allergist’s semi-busy parking lot. I stopped and chaperoned him across the lot to ensure he didn’t get run over.


When he got to the other side of the lot, he kept going back and forth, against the curb.


I wasn’t sure if the square curbing confused him or if he was just getting his bearings, so I gave him some gentle assistance over the curb and he immediately headed into the landscaping, taking refuge in the shade of a cactus.

We don’t see many of these guys, so I always try to look after them if I can. Their days are usually numbered as it is.
