Few things create more fear in people than being near a creepy-crawly tarantula.

If you want to get over that fear, or if your family is adventurous, then a new exhibit at the San Francisco Zoo is just for you.

Besides staring at their fangs and fuzzy legs of 20 different species, people visiting the Tarantulas: Alive and Close Up exhibit will learn that tarantulas are gentle giants that aren't deadly to humans.
