my almost 4 yr old has been asking for a pet huntsman ever since her daycare found one in the play yard and they focused a whole week on which spiders are safe ad which arent and all that.



i'm reluctant but SO wants to get her one. i couldnt imagine WILLINGLY having one in my house haha



but she also wants a pet elephant and a pet unicorn... so i figure she'll just get over it haha

Lol!
I have never ever checked my bed Not even for snakes and I am far more scared of snakes. I grew up on a property and king browns were sadly part of normal life. Snakes so big that you can't see where the head or tail is! Whole chickens went missing, the culprit, an effing huge snake.
I had a baby red belly black slither over my leg when laying on my lounge room floor! Biggest fear: where is mum!
I used to be outdoorsy but my fear over came that and I spent most time inside... Safe or so I thought until a f**king green tree snake wrapped itself around my curtain rod, not deadly but fangs like glass and they repeatedly attack... Scary little bastard!
