Here's one: they're all female. I had one on my hand - I thought I'd DIE. Scarier than paragliding....

Oo, what a gorgeous lady she is! I love spiders, and I've always wanted to see a golden orb weaver! :D

Your willingness to go the extra mile for your fans is unmatched.. you are amazing! I have always wanted to hold a tarantula but I am too creeped out. Has to be said ... You Rock!!!

Looks kind of like a banana spider, which are typically harmless.

DesmoidSurvivor 1981 days ago

Oh good grief...sitting here is close enough. I hope it stayed still and didn't crawl around...that's the worst thing. xxx

How big is she?

Stephen you are so brave! Award i think!

Are you normally afraid of spiders, or is it because of their size? They seem rather attractive + their venom wouldn't kill you, I assume it's painful, though. So better to avoid that xD

I'm scared of them, not as much as I used to be, read up on them and they are really interesting...but why do they have to look so bloomin creepy??

girlboymusic 1981 days ago

You're a brave man, Stephen. I want to cry just looking at it.

I'm not scared of spiders myself, but that one would make me step back.
