LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 25: Zookeeper Jeff Lambert measures Jacqueline, a Mexican Red-Kneed Tarantula, at ZSL London Zoo as part of their annual weighing and measuring of their animals on August 25, 2011 in London, England. The heights and weights of over 750 different animal species at the zoo are recorded into the International Species Information System, to monitor their health and share the data with other zoos across the world.

If the sight of a huge tarantula sitting on a 12-year-old girl’s shoulder freaks you out, then you should pass on this.  She got a “Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantula” when she was six, and it was the size of a dime.  Now it’s as big as a small hand.

Her dad won’t even touch it.
