Baby Tarantula


Meet the latest addition to our family. We first saw him/her a couple of weeks ago, when it was a small baby. It's been living in our inside garden and seems to be growing well. The kids have loved seeing him about the place and consider it their pet.

The post Baby Tarantula appeared first on VelaCreations.
