    And you can never tell if a Rattler is having a good or a bad day, they are P****d off 24/7:D, had a couple of Pygmy Rattlers at one point, they are feisty and pack a huge punch for their size, their Venom is concentrated.

    Venomous snakes ... love so many, of them, and quite a few are gorgeous!
    Cobras are one of my favorites among the venomous. Beautiful and intelligent.
    However, no matter my experience, with snakes, I would never have a venomous in my own collection (& will just continue to admire them, etc.). Well, not exactly, I do/would own rear fanged venomous snakes.;)
    There are Venomous, in my state, but would be an extremely rare occurrence, to ever come across one, in the portion that I live in.

    Thanks :) I get surprised by how many spiders I find in my house. It's like we are meant to be :p
    Last year I found a Lycosa tarantula in my kitchen, pretty big one it was. I've never seen one before so I kept it for a while and released it out once it got warmer outside.

    I wish there was wild T's where I live! We do have alot of jumping spiders and wolf spiders. I've found some others that are pretty exotic looking but when I was younger. That's a nice find forsure. I'd say keep her!

    It's not actually a T like the ones we own, rather looks like a big wolf spider (I think it even is an European wolf spider) but imagine my surprise walking into the kitchen and seeing a 6-7 cm big spider on the floor :D This is how it looked like (not my pic)
