The Tarantula's Burrow
The title should be enough to warn away arachnophobes, but just to be safe, let's be perfectly clear: If you don't like spiders and snakes, don't click here. On the other hand, arachnophiles and snake lovers will find a feast of images and information about tarantulas, spiders, snakes, scorpions, and snails. Now don't accuse us of being chauvinistic, but we'll bet five bucks that more guys like this web location than the girls.

It's alive! It's alive!

Tarantula's Burrow

We hope the title is enough to scare away arachnophobes, but just to be sure: if you don't like spiders, don't click here unless you're into habituation therapy or just like to terrify yourself. Arachnophiles, however, come on in because there is a visual feast of images and text about spiders, especially tarantulas, lists of dealers, descriptions of the disposition of various types - which range from docile to highly aggressive - games, puzzles, jokes, care sheets, spider animations (works with Internet Explorer browser only: fie!), and articles with facts and intriguing details. Do we really need to defend the eight-legged, silk-secreting things? If so, let's just say they help to keep the insects down, even if their image isn't helped by their method of turning the insides of their prey to liquid before sucking them up for supper. The site also provides similar treatment for scorpions, snakes, and snails, thus constituting a quartet of less than widely loved creatures. Among the games, we liked splat man, where you have to guess the right letters to save the spider from getting splatted. Now, let's have no deliberate cheating. Be nice!

The Tarantula's Burrow - Arachnophobes will not like this one. Pictures, cartoons, taxonomy, animations, anatomy, articles, surveys. Everything you don't really want if you have a morbid fear of those eight-legged critters. On the other hand, if you are an arachnophiliac (no, it doesn't mean that!) then you're in for a treat. And, if you are of that particular persuasion, chances are you will have a penchant for scorpions too, and perhaps even snakes. If that is the case, you will find enough to keep you occupied for a while here. Otherwise, keep away. (31 March 2000) DB

The Tarantula's Burrow
All the information you could possibly want about tarantulas, scorpions, snakes, and similar critters that make people go "yuck". Dealer databases, picture galleries, FAQs, trivia, articles, mailing lists…if it's arachnid-related, it's probably here. Lots of good stuff for the non-squeamish surfer.

Lots of information on scorpions at the Tarantula's Burrow at -- also covers other kinds of adorable, cuddly wildlife like snakes and tarantulas.
