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.
