Tarantula discovered in Carlow store

A large tarantula has been discovered in a Carlow town store.

The discovery was made by two local children who were rummaging around the Chic and Cheerful shop, but luckily for them the spider was dead!

The exotic hairy spider is believed to have originated in Peru. The pair discovered the tarantula which was encased in a glass box when they sifting through donations for the shop.

“We think he might be an endangered species,” said the proprietor of the shop

 “[we] think he might be from the goliath tarantula family, so we have decided to send him to the Natural History Museum for tests.”
