Tarantula is among the most feared spiders in the world. It is giant and has hairy appearance, but is not able to harm people seriously. Sure tarantulas look freaky, but in reality they are almost harmless to people. Naturally they can bite, yet the venom they have has almost no effect on people.
We should say that the black widow spiders and wild tarantulas are quite uncommon. Yet, even so this scene took place in Southern California.
