My boss mentioned that he had a tarantula in his house. Now, my boss isn't really sure what a tarantula looks like so I was skeptical. I told him I could come over and identify it for him and he asked if I could remove it. I said sure, so at lunch time we went to his house for a tarantula hunt.
First I looked around the edges of the room. Then we started to move things away from the wall. Lastly, he tilted the couch up and there it was, a BIG tarantula walking his direction. I didn't want to alarm him so I said he could put the couch down. The tarantula scurried to the edge of the room and then I scooped him up with a big cup and a file folder for a lid.
I took him out to the backyard and let him go in the wash. I asked my boss how something so big could get in his house and he said that sometimes when he gets up at 4:30am he likes to open the front door and let the cool air in. Well, that's not the only thing he's letting in. I also found a dead scorpion AND centipede in the same room! That's a little too much nature even for me.
