So I guess Tarantulas are on the move here in SB... Yeah I know, crazy!!! I did a bit of reading on these things because I almost ran one over on my dirt bike the other day.
...each year, thousands of tarantulas brave countless dangers as they migrate to their ancestral breeding grounds somewhere in northern Santa Barbara county. The journey, which is believed to span some 50 miles across treacherous terrain and several county highways, is one of the most unusual mass migrations. Once thought to be only myth, the Nojoqui Tarantulas have recently been rediscovered and their great migration the source of scientific wonder and amazement....
These things are no joke, they're HUGE!!! This spider was bigger than a mouse... I have never seen a spider so big in my life.
