I live in the Lake Livingston area my whole life, seen tons of different kinds of creatures. Never have I seen any spider larger than a Wolf spider. Where can I find one of these in the wild??
Could also be a Aphonopelma chalcodes.One reason for females to have a bigger abdomen is because males usually dont feed much after their ultimate molt.
Great informative video man! :D And some very nice photos at the end. Would love to have big T's in the Netherlands! :D
I have to say real quick that the size of the abdomen doesn't determine the sex. :P I have some pretty fat males and a couple of females on the lean side. These spiders are so awesome, though. One of my mom's clients brought the sexiest wild mature male A. hentzi that he caught just south of our home town and gave him to me as a pet. I named him Mr. Legs because he was super leggy and one of his legs was half-gone from (most likely) a bad molt. Oh, my gosh he was gorgeous. His legs and peds were jet black, his carapace and chels were this lovely soft amber, and his abdomen was a deep brown with red setae. His eyes had also been scraped off somehow, as well. He succumbed to being a geriatric old man spider and now his body is mounted in a shadowbox. Now, I have a mature female (most likely wild caught, as well) of the same species and wish he would have lived long enough to breed the two.
Lol I like spiders... All I can say Orry is that me seeing someone who is afraid of spiders is like you seeing someone who is afraid of snakes haha. It dosent make sense lol.
she garbed you!
Spiders creep me out. Unlike snakes, you can't really look them in the eye and connect with them in any meaningful way. And also unlike snakes, they don't avoid people very well. They invade your home and have a bite-first-questions-later policy, even if their "attacker" is simply sleeping and THEY decided to go crawling around in the bed. The only reason I'm okay with most of the spiders in my house is because they're competition for hobo spiders, which truly are dangerous. And what you said about the size of a tarantula's fangs compared to a copperhead is NOT comforting. At all.
Cool! I actually have a little guy as a pet. It's pretty sweet that you're doing a video on them. Thanks!
great. .. Post has a problem
Awesome! I have more experience with wild tarantulas and no NOTHING about captive ones ;) Thanks for watching
Saved my tx brown from my hubby (orkin Man). Hadda convince my son shes not a wolf spider. Hey tx gal here played with Ts all my childhood
Everyone has their phobia I guess. Catch you one of these guys and they'll help you get over that :)
They are awesome spiders and make great pets. I wish more people saw them like you. Thanks for watching
Thank you! Hopefully that will come true one day. Thanks for watching
Thank you. I had to build myself up for the spiders. I do not trust them as much as I do snakes ;) Thanks for watching
I would scream like a girl if that thing was on my back
this was a great video, thx my hubby (orkin Man) found mine wandering in a camp house and brought her home to me Im a Teaxas gal. He thought he was saving her. Lol well he did save her from him. I went ahead and adopted her, I played with ts as a little girl growing up in west tx. Your video was very helpful to show my goofy child she is not a wolf spider. Thx Ory
I just moved here to texas a couple months ago from florida and i had no idea yall have tarantulas here. whats the best way to find one? im in the southeast part of texas
I have never heard one hiss nor heard of one being able to do so. I cannot explain the noise you heard. Sorry, but thanks for watching!
Thanks for the kind words and thanks again for watching!
you are so lucky to live in a state with such cool fauna! great job!
I watch a show on Animal Planet called "River Monsters" and recently, they aired an episode about unseen videos from their fishing trip around the world, both bloopers and struggles. Just a suggestion, I think it'll be cool if you do that too. Blooper reel from your snake encounters. :)
me too i is always good to have reptiles around
Just the fact that you caught a hognose snake would have been an awesome year to me! I love hoggies! Thanks for watching buddy, and I hope you find all the snakes you are searching for
Hi! I just. Caught a tarantula a about an hour ago. I live in San Antonio and never seen one! Thank you for your knowledge and I plan to release it in a few hours. I didn't touch it. It put a big clear plastic cup over it and then put the top on it. I don't know what type it is.
Thanks for the info. I just caught one of these in the Texas hill country. I haven't handled it yet but at the very least know that it is a female thanks to your video. A good thing because my niece named it Crystal before we knew that little tidbit. LOL
Agreed. This is a very fascinating video, will watch again.
Now THAT'S FUNNY Orry! You, a poisonous snake guy, afraid of spiders! Just kidding. It takes some "adjusting" to be as free with spiders as with what you know well. Blessings. :)
Trust me, tarantulas are pretty much the only spiders I handle. I just do not trust them. I can read a snake but I never know what a spider is thinking. Thanks for watching :)
Thank you sir!! I am in love with our new macro lens we use for filming! Thanks for the support and watching the videos brother!
Likewise brother. One of the FEW! They have been extremely laid back and easy to work with. Thanks for watching
Spring right after a good rain. Certain places have more than others, so road scouting will be necessary. If you stick to it, you will find one. Thanks for watching
Honestly man I think you need a tv show! I love your videos!
You definitely have a future in nature documentaries, these are the best on Youtube. Thank you for making them
Wow dude i wouldnt have the guts to have that tarantula on my back
What is the flap called?
Very cool, Orry.
i live in texas to and their are a lot of reptiles around my house
Fun video Orry. And those close ups are really amazing. Always love the rattlesnake intro as well.
I used to be afraid of them too but you grow more comfortable with them the more you hold them. You just have to face your fears and let one crawl on you. Thanks for watching!
Damn, there are tarantulas in Texas? holy crap. didnt know that . you mentioned you didn't know tarantulas but you described it to a tea and also other things about them, lol.
Their venom is actually no worse than that of a bee sting. A bite from one of these can cause some minor, necrotic effects, but definitely not to the same effect as a viper bite. Thanks for the question and for watching
Thank you :)
An absolutely wonderful video. For a herpetologist, you are quite familiar with arachnids as well.
Haha. Thank you. I know the basics about them, but not near as much as snakes. Thanks for watching brother
Spiders can be tricky when it comes to gauging their moods. In general before I pick them up or mess with the taniks, I lightly touch their leg with something and if kick hairs or strike, it's a no go.
Texas browns are a very nice find. One of the few spiders I will handle.
