Creepy Crawly Tarantulas - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
You just encountered a big, creepy, fuzzy-looking spider and you let out a big SCREAM! The beady-eyed spider appears to be as big as a house as it slowly meanders across the desert trail. You think it is out to nibble on your fingers so your first thought is to…WAIT! Are tarantulas really out to get you? Are they as creepy as you think they are? And are these hairy arachnids dangerous? If you have questions about our desert spider, the tarantula, then this program is for you. Join Ranger Tish for this 1-hour program as we explore the mysterious lives of tarantulas. Meet inside the Nature Center.
