    ok, so people in the small island country of Sri Lanka are just discovering a giant spider? They dont really pay attention to their suroundings down there.

    Re: New Giant Tarantula Discovered

    the best part about this is that it's in Sri Lanka, and google won't even give me directions so that means it's impossible for those things to get close to me.

    The people in Sri Lanka knew about it, this is just new to people outside Sri Lanka.
