Couple gets a startling welcome after moving to San Antonio

STONE OAK – About eight months ago, Teouna Thomas and her husband moved to San Antonio from Dallas a week ago.

They spotted a huge Texas Tan Tarantula crawling its way up the patio door. The husband captured the eight legged creature and put it into a storage bin.


Next, they called up the office of their apartment complex to explain the situation. A worker said that they will take it and release it back into the wild.

The Texas Tan Tarantula can grow four to six inches long. Right now, during the hot months it’s mating season and is for certain why the Thomas family spotted one up close and personal. It’s good to have them around because they keep the roach and cricket population down.
