You Never Know What May Live in Your Back Yard!

What’s in that Hole? You will be Surprised! from Montana Austin on Vimeo.


A neighborhood girl in San Jose- Yatti, came to visit today. (I teach her English). We were in the back yard picking up mango’s. While collecting mango’s, I saw on the ground this hatch like thing made of dirt.. I pointed it out to her and she said WATCH THIS!

She continued to open this tiny hatch to expose a perfect round hole in the ground.

She found a stick and put saliva on the end ….placed it in the hole and in seconds a big black spider jumped out!!…. I think that it could be the Brazilian Wandering Spider which is very deadly..

If you know about Panama spiders…..
