Some people think spiders are scary. And these people are therefore scared of spiders. This is unfair. Spiders have feelings too. They don’t mean to be scary. It’s just they’re not quite as furry or cuddly as, say, a rabbit. Spiders can be your friends too, though. There really is nothing to fear. They won’t bite or hurt you. Normally they just run about minding their own business. You often find them in your bath. I’m not really sure why that is. Perhaps they go there when they get thirsty? Spiders have eight legs. We have a tarantula at Smithills Open Farm. She is a BIG spider. But she is lovely.
