Post-Mortem Golden Beauty

I love spiders, at home I am raising a Chilean Rose Hair tarantula and a Mexican Red-Knee tarantula. The Chilean Rose I rescued from a pet shop where they were about to throw her away due to legal restrictions regarding the sales of tarantulas. I have always loved bugs, nature, etc I am a bit of a tom-boy. Handling my tarantulas of course is quite strange to some, considering almost all of us have a natural fear of spiders. Hopefully I can ease some fears with this image.
