Birdeater by FanOfTill Birdeater by FanOfTill
I don't feel comfortable with spiders, so I decided to break this state of mind by drawing.
My OC Zachiel with poecilotheria metallica. I must say this spider can be called "good-looking" :)

That's one beautiful spider oddly complementing the floating orb thingys. Looks like it would tickle.
Did it work to make you less uncomfortable?

Well, it was interesting experiment. I think I will be ok holding a terrarium with this birdeater, but if I'd see it running free I still probably would get heart attack xD

I'm that kind of person that goes "Hey look a bug!" and then sometimes hands it over to someone. I like spiders and taking out even bigger ones that have got into my house is just a matter of making it stay in my hands. Big spiders around where I live goes into the legspread being a large coin. Small ones tend to hang in my hair from time to time.
I can apparently squish silverfish (apparently cool looking pests) and seach for "Decticus verrucivorus" by sound before catching them and showing them as well. They can bite quite hard if annoyed.

I know something about birdeaters and I probably could take brahypelma or something like this on my hand, but poe family is fast as fuck and also has quite strong venom. :V

I live more in the middle of Europe and also almost at the end of my city, so during summer I have a lot of insects around. Normally it doesn't make me fell bad, but once at the evening I found gigantic locust directly in the middle of my monitor (for fucks sake, it could FLY and it DID IT) and that was really a traumatic moment. :C

I think similar thing about them. :D Birdeaters are different than other spiders, I don't feel same uncomfortable with them like with other spiders. Some of them indeed look kinda cute.

well, my tollerance isn't that wide, it only covers "poecilotheria metallica". I even have a species based on that spiders. I might publish here. The problem was the images, because I did some modifications because I believed the original image was Creative Commons, what apparently never were :/ , so I think I can't upload here with the images...

Yup, poe metallica is cute, but also extremley fast and quite dangerous while biting. I will also make short animation for my diploma where spiders are important and I think I will use more "calm" tarantula in it. :)

I think you can just upload a pic, only you have to mention the author of original picture. Creative Commons is more for people who want to make money on some reference picture or other stuff.
