Last Monday I ordered two young, captive-bred 1½”-2” Mexican red knee tarantulas from Jamie Lessee.
The tarantulas arrived via the US Mail after my last class on Friday. A number of the subfreshman cross county team members heard of their arrival and enthusiastically participated in set-up and preparation of enclosures.
Within several minutes each new enclosure was prepared. I carefully unwrapped each tarantula, placed each in its shipping tube, and photographed the kids with the tarantulas and the enclosures each group prepared.
