Houdini's great escape

By

Posted Sep 19, 2015

We acquired this tarantula - along with all of his accessories -from our friend who worked at the local pet shop. Mostly, this was a fine pet. The spider lived on a healthy diet of spiders, which were let loose in the cage once a week. We were told that he hunted them, although we never happened to be present for the occasion. He seemed pretty quiet, and so I was cool with him living with us.

It turns out that tarantulas are quite strong - and fast. Ours figured out how to escape his terrarium (the lid was slightly loose), and he went missing. We found him chilling in the living room after searching the entire house for two hours. It was because of this that we let him go free (this species of tarantula is native to our area, so we knew he'd be safe living in the yard).
