    What I learned from this video: spider bites cause hair loss.

    I bet you I will still kill one the next time I see it, no matter which species it is.

    A 23 foot anaconda and a 200 pound jaguar locked in combat,I touch both of them. Do you think they would even notice me. The magicians trick of misdirection, these two spiders are more concerned about each other than what they are standing on. If this guy wants to hold a single spider, like a wandering, I would gladly watch.

    Please STOP posts like this! “Creepy” is not one of the four Cs listed on 22 words, not why I subscribe to you… Nightmares!! AAACCCKKK! ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’m glad he added the warning. I was *so* close to trying this for myself.Things I learned: Spider-spray will not kill but only enrage the spider.He didn’t mention if the same is true for when I hold a lit match near the nozzle…

    Wow! This is awesome! I’ve always liked spiders, no matter how poisonous, and this guy just made me like them even more! I mean, they are so fascinating, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Observations: – I was hoping the spiders would fight each other. – For some reason I thought brown recluses were larger than that. I am slightly more paranoid now. – Every year I have to kill a few black widows that set up shop right outside my front door. Hate them.

    No? Why not? There is so much you can learn about spiders. So many different types of spiders, different hunting-behaviours… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    well my fear has more to do with where spiders are while I’m sleeping… You could easily roll over onto a spider, causing it to bite you. Whereas if you are awake, you could simply avoid the spider.

    This is the only 22 Words video that I haven’t been able to finish watching, and that says a lot.
