The California tarantula is an amazing animal.  During the fall the males of this species are wandering around looking for females to mate with.  A group of families and students along with a friend of mine went out to the hills of Mount Diablo State Park on Saturday to explore and find these large arachnids, and oh man did we find them!  Check out #wolflabadventure success!!! - A California tarantula (Aphonopelma iodius) 😁 what a beautiful specimen!
 

This was our first adventure of the season and with some patience we saw 7 or 8 beautiful arachnids wondering the hill sides of the park.
 

We were lucky enough to be there and document the male tarantula's journey.
