This is about a spider I bought a couple months ago and the really strange events that followed him.
Almost three months ago I went into the pet shop in town, I was going to buy a fish but instead I left with a Western Desert Tarantula. For weeks I found him quite boring, not once did I see him feast on his prey (crickets). Most of the time he was a hermit hiding in the back of his log. Every once in a while late at night I would find him sitting outside his home on the sand watching as crickets played. One morning in May I noticed I haven't seen Aerogod for days so I grabbed a flashlight pointing it into his Domain I didn't see anything out of place. He looked quite comfortable in the back of his lair. After a few more days, I really started to think it was odd not seeing him out so then I grabbed flashlight again and a wire poking it into the hole to my surprise there was a lot of webbing in there Still he decided not come out. Then i started to worry he wasn't even in there, lol. So i decided to grab some tongs in attempt to pull him out. On my first try i pulled out what seemed to be spidey legs, now i was worried he was dead. I tried once more and suddenly a Tarantula jolted out. He didn't look like Aerogod he had a bright red coloring to him. I noticed over a few hours he seemed quite different, crawling on top of his cage, jumping around. Then I noticed he had black socks on all eight of his feet. I began getting curious if this was really my Tarantula so i went and got the tongs again. This time i pulled out dried skin, as i examined it I quickly noticed that the color matched Aerogods. Now I wonder how could this be?
