    A prank, perhaps?

    Definitely. That's a Chilean Rose Tarantula, which isn't poisonous.

    I used to have one just like it :)

    Has anyone tried phoning Robert?

    I've always gone by the mantra of 'with spiders and scorpions, the fuck-off big ones are actually nothing to worry about and nowhere near as dangerous as the smaller ones'. Having said that, I'd probably would not want to engage in heavy petting with any tarantula I'd come across.

    I agree that the poster is probably a prank, but in any case it's a superfluous gesture. Either you see it or you don't, and if you see it you don't need a poster to teach you to keep the fuck away from it. But then perhaps the idea is to prevent anyone who comes across it from squashing it on sight, so the poster might prove useful.

    This joker raised the stakes by saying their allegedly missing tarantula was pregnant.

    Text reads: "I know she looks crazy scary, but she's mostly harmless. She's pregnant, so I'm hoping to find her before she has her babies. She's mostly active at night and likes to hide in dark corners. She shouldn't bite, but sometimes jumps when frightened. If you find her, please try to catch her and put her in a tupperware bowl with a few holes in the top for air. Then please call me and I will come and get her."

    That looks very similar to the one I lost in the Albert the other week.

    Spiders are venomous not poisonous.

    I have to admit I'm not really seeing the 'prank' part... How is it supposed to be funny

    Well it gave us a laugh, and my youngest thought it was great, so it did it's job.

    Not true, I'm afraid. They both carry the AIDS virus.

    So don't forget to wear protection if you, ahem, come across any large scorpions or spiders :thumbs:
