Pink Toed Tarantula

Precious Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday.

Please Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presently Presenting for your Perusing Pleasure.

They've Plotted, Planned, and Preformed to Perfection so you can take a Peek.



Julia Louis-Dreyfus appeared on Jay Leno Wednesday night. She told how when she and her husband were traveling in the Rainforest of Peru, a pink toed tarantula got on her husband's back. I'd never heard of such a thing, but it sounded like a possible Pink Saturday post, so I looked it up. Here's what this venomous insect looks like.




Okay, I'm scratching the Rainforest of Peru off of my list of
"Things to See."



See you in two days for Blue Monday!

I too am scratching off Peru from my bucket list. I would have been too scared to have seen the pink toes. Spooky.
Happy Pink Saturday.

P.S. I just saw your friendly reminder about blondes. I have had a very bad blonde moment today and I can assure that's good advice.

Coloradolady said...

Oh, scratch that....how scary....spiders, snakes, and bugs.....are not for me!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Ugh Sally.... I love most 'pink' things--but that one is not on my list. ha ha ... My oldest son once had a "pet" Tarantula (in a glass fish bowl)... I was scared to death of that thing. He named it JOE --and it lived in his bedroom. I'm glad it never got out of that bowl. ha

I am sad today though. My sweet brother died yesterday. There's joy in heaven but sadness here.
Hugs,
Betsy

Vicki said...

Hi, Sally,
No, I don't think I would want to meet up with this critter either!! I had never heard of such a thing, but there is always something new to learn. Happy Pink Saturday to you!! Vicki

Oh dear...a tarantula..I almost couldn't come and look...but I did! I'm so proud of myself.

But, I don't like it...not a bit.

Interesting idea for a pink post, though.

Darlene said...

I would have freaked out if I had seen that thing on someone!!!!! It does look pretty neat with pink at the tips of its' toes!

CC said...

Hmmmm, I wonder who is his/her nail stylist?? :). Great grief, I would have fainted dead away... shudders and shivers. Happy Pinks dear Sally..have a most wonderful week.

The air is cooler, the days are shorter, winter is on its way. From now until April of next year I will have to rely on Pink Saturday for my pink fix!

Thanks for participating this week and for helping my day be just a little bit more pink and sweet!

EEEEEEWWWWWWW...

Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with the love of family and good friends.
