Those Creepy Crawly Spiders

I can handle snakes, cockroaches, centipedes—whatever, without being affected at all, but spiders?  I am, or at least I was, terrified no matter what the size. Some people would say that we become afraid of spiders because it seems ‘popular’ to be… but that’s ridiculous, as the fear is something that we cannot control. So why is it that arachnophobia is the most common phobia? I am sure that it has something to do with the household spiders we see daily crawl out of creepy, dark places.

I was pleasantly surprised during my first week interning at the Butterfly Pavilion. Like most of the little kids that pour through the doors of the Butterfly Pavilion I held Rosie. Rosie, a tarantula. Having a hairy spider tickle the palm of my hand as it was walking across was in itself exciting. It has even made me have second thoughts about my fear of spiders.

So I urge you all to think about your fear and see if you want to overcome it with a chance to hold Rosie in the Crawl-A-See-Em. If I can do it, anyone can.
