Spiders in CU Boulder

I have seen several varieties of spiders around the CU Boulder campus.  Thankfully, I have  not seen any black widows yet, and I hope that I don’t.  They are one of the few spiders that creep me out.

I have seen quite a few wolf spiders:

and one tarantula:

I used to be afraid of all spiders, but now I think some of them are pretty neat.  Since living in the west, I have found that I am not actually afraid of a creature that I can easily step on, if I wanted to.   These days, I rarely do.  Black widows get to die, and camel “spiders” too, but everything else is okay in my book.

Thank you for reading my post.
