These Hilarious Tarantulas Prove That Spiders Aren’t Scary

Tarantulas and spiders get a bad reputation because they are forced to play the villains in movies, tv shows and everyday life as people have been conditioned to be arachnophobic. But if you spend time near any spider, you’ll find out that they are just big silly nerds!

I’ve compiled this list of funny tarantulas to prove once and for all that spiders aren’t scary. These images are NOT Photoshopped – these are real tarantulas from around the internet living their lives and being ridiculous while doing it. Share this with your friends and anyone who has a fear of spiders to show just how silly spiders can be 🙂
