We climbed like Tarantula’s!

June 9th, 2009 | Comments Off | Posted in Scales And Tails

This past Scales and Tails workshop was all about Tarantula’s!  We held our workshop at Momentum Climbing Gym.  (Thanks guys!)  First off we learned about a variety of tarantula’s, focusing mainly on the three that S&T has in-house.  The Rose Hair, the Pink Toe, and the Chaco Golden Tarantulas.  We looked at their fangs, their hairs and their sticky feet!  We even got to use a magnifying glass on a molt of a tarantula!  Everyone then got a chance to hold one of the creepy crawers.  It was a little scary for some but at the same time…really really cool!  Then Shane pulled out the BIG SURPRISE!  We got an up close and personal view of a Goliath Bird Eating tarantula!!!  It was HUGE!  We got to feed all the spider crickets and the we became spiders ourselves!  Momentum Climbing Gym allowed us to pretend to be tarantula’s by climbing the walls!  S&T had a team of belayers (people who tied us in the harnesses and made sure we were safe as we used the ropes to climb) and we were able to scramble up and down rock walls. It was SO much FUN!!  We can’t wait for next month!
