Brave 12-Year-Old Shows Off Her Tarantula

 

 

This video was hard to watch.  This little girl has guts, I wouldn’t hold anything called a “bird-eater”.

 

Info from submitter:

“I shot this video in my home. The video is of my 12 year old daughter, Lily Beth Schuster-Harris, and her pet tarantula named Sasha. Lily has always been fascinated by spiders. I took her to a reptile show when she was 6 years old and she asked me to buy her the tarantula, so I did. Sasha is a female Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantula (Lasiodora parahybana). This terrestrial tarantula species is the third largest species in the world. Sasha turned 6 years old in December 2017 and Lily raised her from a spiderling the size of a dime. This species can live up to 25 years in captivity.”
