Tarantual Festival - Coarsegold

No, they really are not that big! This one is made by one of our local artists, Wayne Boring. It sits high up in a tree that was trimmed last year. Coarsegold has an annual Tarantula Festival in October, there are lots of surprises, scream contests, foods to munch on etc. We start seeing those crawly things after the first rain in Oct. but I heard they eat the rattlesnake eggs. . So, I love these little creatures, just have to be careful not to drive over them on the road when they cross over to find their mate..
